Reaching out to launch a small boat is an almost ritualistic gesture.  Bending into the current of exploration, the child sets the object of metaphorical self into the stream.  The mind steps into the voyage, tracing rivulets made into waves, imagining vast tidal currents of the mind.  Destinations are not pondered so much as the voyage itself.   Boy and boat are one, transcendent on the moving stage of a summer afternoon.
