Fredrick Swan is an artist and an author whose career has encompassed
years of working as a child and family counselor, an individual therapist

A River Runs Through It and Other Stories by Norman Maclean
“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.”
