The river flows both ways.
The current moves from west to east, but when the wind blows against the current, the water ripples in the opposite direction.
The river, running both ways, reminds us that time moves forward; yet, we yearn to go back, compelled to preserve and record past time in art and artifacts. (Margaret Laurence, The Diviners)
