Chapman’s Bar: a gravel bar in the Fraser River.As the heat breaks, the rain begins in the ancestral homeland of the grassland peoples.
Some rocks never dried out. The spring river made a nest around this one. The rain washes off the muck of logging that has come down the river from the plateau. Rocks are life. If you think with the earth. Beautiful life!
Volcanic rifts, volcanic islands, subductions, stratovolcanoes, plutons, island arcs, metamorphoses, uplifted seabeds carved by glaciers and all rounded by water: ah!
This is the river talking and taking us home.
