Blogging 101: Say Your Name


Day 2


Why River Writer?


It’s not the perfect name, but I haven’t thought of anything better yet.

The river is always moving, always changing, always bringing new things, and washing away old ones. The title ‘A River Runs Through It’ was already taken!

I started the blog in order to write more, so that part was already in place.


I searched for ages to find a tagline, to reflect the flow of ideas behind my posts. Who knows what adventures lie ahead, and what subjects will catch my attention?



“It is not required that we know all of the details about every stretch of the river. Indeed, were we to know, it would not be an adventure, and I wonder if there would be much point in the journey.” ― Jeffrey R. Anderson


I recently found this quote from Bruce Lee, which I like even better.

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. 

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
― Bruce Lee


Be water, my friend.

  1. A lovely metaphor and thoughtful discussion!

    Here’s another quote about water that you might like.

    “The best people are like water.
    They benefit all things,
    And do not compete with them.
    They settle in low places,
    One with nature, one with Tao.”
    (Diane Dreher (1990, The Tao of inner peace, p. 139).
