Canoeing in the Boundary Waters by Gabriel LaCount from Vantage

The River

I looked across the glossy stream.

The mystery of the other side more seductive than the girls in bikinis sitting on the sand sipping their drinks.

I dove in and loved the way silence consumed me.

Eyes closed with no regard to which way I was going.

The current was pushing softly on the side of my head, like an uncomfortable pressure.

Swimming to somewhere I didn’t know.
