The tranquility of rivers is never so close than in deep summer, rivers awaken our senses, renewing connections with nature. I’ve never lived far from a river almost like a magnet I’ve always been pulled towards one. They all have a destination and they travel relentlessly, unlike a lake. I have many favourites but perhaps if I had to select one, it would be the Ouse, in Sussex, not far from where my eldest son went to boarding school. In many ways this river is ‘owned’, in the sense that it is also known as Virgina Woolf’s river, it is where she drowned herself, whilst London was being battered by bombs in March 1941. She left Monks House, where she lived with her husband Leonard, in a fur coat and wellingtons and walked for ten minutes down a track to the river, filled her pockets with stones and then immersed herself in water. She was found three weeks later, washed up near Southease. T.S. Elliot wrote when her death was announced it was ‘the end of the world’. But still the river flows, moving through time as well as space, shaping our past and continuing to lure people. If you happen to find yourself alongside a river this week, breathe deeply, there is more than just life beneath its surface.
