Gutters of our youth
And why we return to watch it flow

There’s nothing better …

Than the flow of water, even in a gutter.

Why gutter flow is important

I take that back. I mean “especially” in a gutter. Why? Call me a child of the suburbs perhaps. But for me growing up as a pre-teenage kid, to this day I can still remember having fun watching (and racing) leaves in the gutter after a good rain. Another favorite activity was damming up the water to watch a pool form behind the leaves, and also expanding the makeshift levee to pool the water halfway across the street only to punch a hole in it and watch the water water flow. Simpler times they were, simpler times. Those days may have passed but I’m reminded of them every time it rains and I go to the gutter to watch (and listen) to the water flow.
