The Nabao has its source near my home in Portugal. On my walks I see it change from a dry river bed to a fast-moving stream.

     Do you have the patience to wait
            till your mud settles and the water is clear?

     Can you remain unmoving
            till the right action arises by itself?
                                --Tao Te Ching, (Stephen Mitchell tr.)
