Things are pretty great on Redfish Creek above the over-deepened trough of Kootenay Lake these days.
The kokanee have come home.
The work of mixing the sun with the earth and the water continues.
It is good work.
To live is to rejoice.
To be here is to rejoice even more.
This is a human-made spawning channel.
A gift freely given.
And freely taken.
That is the circle. That is the way.
