via Daily Prompt: Rapid

I grew up in the Ottawa Valley in Petawawa, ON.  It is a beautiful area of this province and I have a lot of fond memories of the place.  When I was in early recovery I was asked to think about the “Serenity” and what it meant to me.  We had to draw a picture to represent how we felt about the word and where or what would allow us to enter a state of serenity.  For me one of the most serene places has always been down by the Ottawa or Petawawa rivers.  I used to love the sensation of the water flowing over me as I lay in the rapids.  I have never found anything quite as good at drowning out the squirrels in my head.  For a few moments I am at peace and calm.  I miss those rapids.
