'The Flowing Wonder'


The sunny road brings me to this place of wonder, and I have no choice but to park. I am standing by a creek bathing in the sunlight. I wish it was summer. Then, I wouldn't wait another minute before I take my clothes off and exchange the unbearable motorcycle heat for a soft touch of these clear waters.

But, it is winter and I am cold. However, I am free to imagine anything I want. :-) Hm, a disturbing thought just came to my mind. Remember the tale Girl With The Matches about a little girl who froze on a street full of people because no one cared? Sometimes I just cannot believe what terrible stories they tell kids and expect them to grow up into sane adults. As soon as I take another picture, I will wash my face with this clear water, just to get the story out of my head.

Refreshing! Really cold. Worked perfectly. The story has gone from my mind. A little further I hear the sound of a small waterfall and walk up the stream to take a look. This is what I find. By the sound of it, I thought it was going to be bigger but, as they say, beauty is not measured and weighed.

Sitting a few minutes by the creek and listening to the free-flowing water makes me feel good in this oasis of serenity. Wish I had one like this in my garden. Would the constant sound of water always make me feel calm or would it start making me uneasy at some point? Guess, I'd have to try.

What I do know for sure is that I feel really good for just being here. There is a huge difference in perception between a road, covered in a tall murky shadow, and a sunny lit creek. A moment to remember.

Enjoy your day! :-)

I am sure you didn't want to leave there.
Who doesn't love the clatter of water from a stream or rock. People sometimes assume well water comes from literal caves or underwater streams, but that is not the case. It flows straight out of the soil and rocks, but i can't explain the chemistry behind how that happens.
Just like you love being around water, Being around water gives our brains and our senses a rest from overstimulation.
When we’re near, on, in or under water, we get a cognitive break because there’s simply less information coming in. Our brains don’t shut down — they keep working, but in a different way.
I once lived near a stream and i must say that i always loved the sound coming from the stream and the chirping of the birds. You never get bored or irritated by the sound. It will calm your soul whenever you need it. Great post. Thanks for sharing @velimir.

water is life, indeed! :)

You know more than your writing i always got attracted by the collection of images you and there is one other user @ironwood on steemit that always used extra ordinary images different than anyone else☺

Per normal, your photographs are extraordinary. I'm really glad you found that place and even more glad that you shared it.

I've broken ice a few times to wash my face and brush my teeth. I think I remember every single time. :)

Thanks for a pleasant start to my day.

hahaha :) yes it is quite a feeling

A meaningful post I think many people forget to enjoy life. They always think how their lives become happy and successful, and when they get the success they want, they forget to enjoy it. They just think about how to be more successful than ever. So how can we enjoy this life? Simple, think positively about everything that happens today, what we are a hurry. We just need to believe it is the thing that will make us stronger than ever.

Things that have not happened for us who are, but make us stronger. Believe me, one day we will laugh and be loving when looking back in time, because we will realize that halo halo that we can already be like now. Life is only once, not too serious? Enjoy life and be grateful with everything we have now.

Thaks you ....

Thank you. Your words are full of wisdom! :)

Sometimes we just need a little motivation to get us off the couch and outside, exploring and adventuring in this great world of ours.The connection to place, to the land, the wind, the sun, stars, the moon... it sounds romantic, but it's true - the visceral experience of motion, of moving through time on some amazing machine - a few cars touch on it, but not too many compared to motorcycles. I always felt that any motorcycle journey was special.

Such a lovely scenery! I'm jealous 😁

When I was a youngster - say in high school, we used to go to a stream regulaly - on a weekly basis, it was indeed refreshing - after a week of full steem learning from morning until night we did need somthing to distract us and refresh our body and soul.

It might sound like a small thing - but just like we can see that the small "waterfall" in the picture creates substantial sound and is really eye pleasing without regard to his size, such experiences - little gems of pleasure in the middle of the life race - are keeping us happy and willing to face the hardships and wear of the everyday.

Thanks for the photos velimir!

Thanks God you didnt dive in freezing water.
It is so beautiful and calm place, as it seems, that everybody would feel peace and pleasure there.
And you are right, I too had goose bumps after reading such insane stories and I wonder about those incidents.
Thanks for sharing another beautiful place. It's love to travel with you :)

horrible stories sometimes make our mind disturbed, but it can be removed by washing face, because water can refresh one's mind, thanks friend, your story is very good, please avote me friend

Wow amazing pics and i love bike riding and i also rider

I like the way you are sharing your travel experience. I am a regular customer of your Motorcycle Series. I love bike riding and traveling. For some reason i couldn't make my dream come true. But feeling happy that you are doing the best. There is another person whom I like most. He also works for charity and travel both. He is @greenman. This image is awesome

I agree with you The serenity of flowing water is just pure amazement..In winters you get different feeling with nature. It's cold but it has got so much to offer. The golden leaves, snow and if the sun is out, you will actually want it more..

The photos look amazing

Wow!! I'm always enthralled with all your posts.. Always having this feeling of liveliness in all of them.. Nice work

Hi @velimir
This place really looks amazing. But this photo, I'm sure that in real life it looks even better. The sun very often accompanies you on the way, even in winter. I can only imagine what it is like in Croatia in the summer. A huge number of rivers and lakes, mountains, the sea and many islands.
The water in this stream looks very clean. This is a pleasant place to let go of all your thoughts and enjoy the moment of life.
Thank you
Good day
