A river, in our book, is a very sensive, more vulnerable, body of water. Unlike the ocean which simply takes in whatever is thrown its way, a river, in order to remain a living river, must maintain a certain degree of color transparency and taste neutrality. Pour contaminants into a river and you can immediately taste the change in the river’s water. Because river water should be clear, impurities can easily be observed. A healthy river is usually surrounded by relatively uspoiled nature — green trees, fresh air. These are only some of the reasons why we’re ecstatic every time we find a living river. We recently found one in Infinity Farm, located in Oriental Mindoro, courtesy of Jessica Dianne Aranas, an architect in the making (check her Instagram account, @jadeyjadeeee for other photos).
