I agree partially with your ideas along the river. But, as I watch the old
trees fall into the river naturally, I see them finding their own way into
the overall scheme of things. So, when we place logs into the river to
mimic this natural behaviour of trees, maybe it is just best to let the
logs fall. They simply fall for the river, not for us and isn't that
aesthetic you mention just for us? Maybe we can call attention from a
distance so as not to disturb the simple acts we wish to see continue. As
if our hands were not present.
