A lovely metaphor put out by Pumpkin Seed in her blog:
“Perhaps I swim against the stream simply to not be swept up in the current and it may be better to appear to be standing still than to be swimming in the wrong direction.”
The Salmon fish are fighters, different form all the other fish . . . they swim against the (main)stream.
This thought never occurred to me before this morning, while reading the White Pumpkin blog.
And it’s a lovely metaphor to have and keep.
