Many children in the mountains of North Carolina grew up playing in creeks in the summertime.
But many kids these days live around concrete, not creeks. So I happened to visit this park when a big bus also brought a lot of small ones to enjoy whatever kids do in water. I know I wished I had worn my suit and felt like sitting in it and moving some rocks around.
It always comes back to the same necessity: go deep enough and there is a bedrock of truth, however hard.
