Nice! I got positive vibes from reading this. The river forming in the garden may symbolize a new beginning. The river, or running water, often symbolizes the inner emotional state. The garden can represent something new. Now, depending upon the condition of the garden with the river--did the river wash away the garden? If so, you may be overrun with emotions right now and need to do some reflecting. This is where the old man comes in. He represents a part of you, that part that needs to do some self reflecting and see what the problem is and where it lies.
