Danger!
A Story by Alice B. Clagett

Here I am at the Los Pinos River. And I'm standing on a rock in the river. And I'm going to pretend that I'm a little branch, floating down the river over there. The title of this video is "Danger!" ... "The Danger of Life!" ... So there I am ... I'm floating down, and I'm looking up ... [pans to sky view]

Oh my goodness, there's storm clouds up there! Now what? What's going to happen? Maybe lightning will strike. Oh my gosh! And I'm floating down. [image of little ripple in the river]

Oh my gosh, it's rapids. Put your feet first, quick! Otherwise you'll hit your head, and Lord knows what will happen! ...

Oh, shoot! Made it, made it! ... It's still not raining ... [pans to bridge over the river]

What's that? A bridge! Oh my goodness! What's going to happen? Maybe the bridge will collapse! ... [shows island under a foot of the bridge]

Oh my gosh! It's an island dividing the river in two! Which way will I go? Will I go left, or will I go right?

Maybe I'd better swim for the left side ... That looks bigger. Or maybe the right side ... That looks quieter. Maybe I should just go with the flow!

What about the cars up there [pans to the top of the bridge] ... Maybe they'll knock down the  .... Oh, ok, here I go, down the small channel ...

Oh my goodness, on the other side, it's all One! Wow, this is so cool! Everything is all right after all! Thank goodness!

Bye, everybody! See you later! [pans to storm clouds in blue sky] ...

Oh my God, that was a close one!


Oh, Good Lord, the Waters of Life
a Song by Alice B. Clagett

Oh good Lord! The waters of life!
Oh good Lord! The trouble and strife!
Should I go this way? Or on this side?

In grace and love, we all abide
In grace and love, we all abide

Oh good Lord! The waters of life!
Oh good Lord! The trouble and strife!
Should I go this way? Or on this side?

In grace and love, all Souls abide
In grace and love, we go side by side
In grace and love, all Souls abide

Trouble!

[standing on rock in river] ... Oh', boy, I'll have to watch my step, I'll tell you!
[stepping from rock to rock, towards shore] ... Whoooo! ... One, two ... Yikes!
... three ... Grab some vegetation! [grabs branch of bush on the shore]
... four ... Ha hah! ... five ... Yes! Dry land! ... Oh! Praise be!
