Dossenoritasymas is a blog about two sisters tackling the world through food, travel, & adventures. katie currently lives in baltimore, while Dani is a traveling nomad (follow her adventures at lonerucksack.com). They both love creatures and drinking wine.

katie bradford likes nonsense, eating, and traveling. she devours books like a ravenous wildebeest, laughs a lot and really, truly enjoys grammar. she leaks money like a sieve, hates exercising, and dislikes capital letters.

Dani Bradford has been (often) described as crazy. She has limited social skills and boundless energy. She loves the outdoors, eating, traveling, AND exercise, and is convinced Jackalopes actually exist.

  1. Once there lived a village of creatures along the bottom of a great crystal river. The current of the river swept silently over them all — young and old, rich and poor, good and evil — the current going its own way, knowing only its own crystal self.

    Each creature in its own manner clung tightly to the twigs and rocks of the river bottom, for clinging was their way of life, and resisting the current was what each had learned from birth.

    But one creature said at last, “I am tired of clinging. Though I cannot see it with my eyes, I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will. Clinging, I shall die of boredom.”

    The other creatures laughed and said, “Fool! Let go, and that current you worship will throw you tumbled and smashed against the rocks, and you will die quicker than boredom!”

    But the one heeded them not, and taking a breath did let go, and at once was tumbled and smashed by the current across the rocks.

    Yet in time, as the creature refused to cling again, the current lifted him free from the bottom, and he was bruised and hurt no more.

    And the creatures downstream, to whom he was a stranger, cried, “See a miracle! A creature like ourselves, yet he flies! See the `[God], come to save us all!”

    And the one carried in the current said, “I am no more a [God] than you. The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure.”

    But they cried the more, “Savior!” all the while clinging to the rocks, and when they looked again he was gone, and they were left alone making legends of a savior.
