  • Out in Yolo County
    On a perfect October Day
    I was wandering through
    The Cache Creek Reserve
  • the event was a celebration
    of reclamation, of remembrance.
    Where we stood was once a
    open gravel pit
    Mined out aggregate to
    make our roads and patios
  • And now you find cranes
    and tule grass
    At creekside you find the stream
    runs clean
    dragon flys and minnows
    dance in reflected light
  • We looked out and back
    Thinking about the ways in which
    history passes and leaves its remains.
    The land
    called us to listen to each other
  • As a community gathered
    As witnesses to our best selves
    Together we return to caretaking
    Balancing our needs as humans,
    with the needs of the earth
    Restore/Restory
    gave us the opportunity
    to explore media and meaning
  • To hear stories of experts and elders,
    natives and farmers, miners and youth,
    Weaving a shared story
    of caretaking.
  • So that some day,
    Others will find,
    A place to relax
    And reflect
    by the side of the creek.
