    "Many rivers to cross / But I can't seem to find my way over / Wandering I am lost / As I travel along the white cliffs of Dover"
    - Jimmy Cliff: "Many Rivers To Cross"
    Spring is in the air and the sun has started to bring much needed light and warmth. Yet, my heart is heavy; hoping against hope but expecting the worst. To wait is a surprisingly active verb... On this sunny Monday I had to get out and follow the sun; try my best to distract my wandering mind. We walked along the river, using the reflected sunlight to speak of loss and love; of science and turbulence; of Italian poetry and translation; and how best to translate Cesare Pavese's haunting opening line "Verrà la morte e avrà i tuoi occhi". In the gloaming, as darkness started to fall in the witching hour; I kept hearing Jimmy Cliff's powerful voice soaring above the strumming of a guitar.

    Many rivers to cross
    And it's only my will that keeps me alive
    I've been licked, washed up for years
    And I merely survive because of my pride
    And this loneliness won't leave me alone
    It's such a drag to be on your own
    My woman left me and she didn't say why
    Well I guess, I have to try
    Many rivers to cross
    But just where to begin, I'm playing for time
    Jimmy Cliff: "Many Rivers To Cross"
