My other two colleagues decided they would rather collect some stones from the water and the bank. They occasionally let out a scream of surprise, marveling at the unique patterns on the stones they picked up.

After playing around for a while, we were tired. We lay down like turtles to recharge our bodies in the sunlight.

I placed a giant egg-shaped stone -- a "jade pillow"-- under my neck to ease some pain, and I found it quite helpful. The stone was hard and hot, and its size suited my neck well. I closed my eyes to the sound of rushing water. Then a few lines of a song suddenly appeared in my head.

"River brings flat land, river brings fertile land.

River gives farmers crops, fishermen fish. She gives ballad singers rhythm, poets lyrics.

River gives us food, river gives us life..."

When I opened my eyes, I saw the porcelain-blue sky thousands feet above me and realized that there were so many things that I had yet to attempt or accomplish in this world.Source: CRI online
