2018 and the Head Above Water Meme?

I just can't help thinking that the "collective unconscious" seems to be preoccupied with keeping its head above water in this current climate -

"To "drown on the river" is to lose a poker hand because of the last card drawn."
I was reading an old post of mine -
'A Day in the Life' of The Muse?
from 2017 which featured the Burt Reynolds movie 'Deal' and the Barry Gibb song 'Drown in the River' off the movie's soundtrack.
To "drown on the river" is to lose a poker hand because of the last card drawn.
Kind of thought it was synchy in hindsight that Shannon Elizabeth starred in that movie with Burt and her birthday is
September 7th and that Burt passed away on September 6th.
("wise river") is an Irish name, Anglicised from Sionainn.Sionainn derives from the Irish name Abha na tSionainn for the River Shannon.
The name Sionainn alludes to Sionna, a goddess in Irish mythology whose name means "possessor of wisdom".
She is the namesake and matron of Sionainn, the River Shannon. Sionainn is the longest river in Ireland.
Sionainn is one of seven rivers of knowledge said to flow from Connla's Well, the well of wisdom in the Celtic Otherworld
(the realm of the dead).
Nine sacred hazel
(or, by some accounts, rowan) trees grow near the well, and drop their bright red fruit in it and on the ground.
In the United States, the name first appeared on the United States's SSA in 1881 for males.

[Oh ... and 1881? The 'dead-man's hand' is a pair of aces and eights in poker]
It later gained popularity as a feminine name in 1937.
During the 1970s, American parents began to confer the name on boys and girls alike.
It was during this time that the name's popularity peaked in the United States.
