Oldenburgh's Mississippi

Oldenburgh’s Mississippi

All green around us. Here and there cows look down on us. From time to time a mosquito gets slain – nothing like this has been recorded on Adam and Eve.

We follow the river’s meander downstream and feel so Huckleberry.

Your back in front of me, I hear the friendly warmth of your voice.

With each stroke the water sucks slowly and dances quietly around the paddle.

This river is too short!

Oldenburgh’s Mississippi, 13 years on

Not even there, between two provincial places in the backwaters of Lower Saxony can you paddle the same river twice.

But if I could, would I dare it?
