Election year and Drought with Thanksgiving

What can be said for a nice long white water swim?
I am bruised, My ego is bruised.
I am questioning my skill level.
I am questioning my judgement.
I am looking to others for a little confidence.
I am looking to others for a little guidance.
I get back on the water.

This drought and election year has had an affect on many, in many ways. Many have become very reactionary and concreted in views that they have little to support, and others have supported there views but let it get personal. Ego which has been checked by the river for years, are now left to wander. Skill and Ego can put you at the top of the list but without returning humble to your beginnings the top starts to feel less. It is the journey not the destination, i know, we heard it before. I am impressed by the boating community, and thankful for all that they teach. Sometimes it's the flat water at the end that makes the rapid awesome at the beginning.
