Everything is secondary to the place itSelf

You ask me what I think of so-called nature writing? I think the same thing about any beautiful writing [beautiful maps]. There is no time for it. There is time for only one thing: saving the earth. The world is being slaughtered and we need to stop it. At this point writing is beside the point: the only — and I mean only — thing that matters is to stop this culture from killing the planet. . . Everything — including beautiful writing [beautiful maps] — emerges from and is secondary to the land.
Derrick Jensen as quoted in My Green Manifesto: Down the Charles River in Pursuit of a New Environmentalism by David Gessner.

Stopped here
the Place called Three Forks of the Missouri witness to a coming together
in winter, in spring, in summer Watersheds polyphonic, water in song & in dance An assembling and mixing and transporting of
My DNA. Your DNA. The DNA.
As in a flood all jumbled together. Coming Together. Did we come together as these rivers
without effort
joining without dispute or judgment How lucky I am
making a mark on a cave wall Marks that saved my life
Marks to make things that
Disrupt and Disturb and Awaken me
In spring and in summer and in winter and autumn.
