Until now.

      Mirror Neuron Over River  

Cloud River and Mirror Neuron" by Karen Hansen c. 2009

              For All
Ah to be alive
     on a mid-September morn

     fording a stream

     barefoot, pants rolled up,

     holding boots, pack on,

     sunshine, ice in the shallows,

     northern rockies.

Rustle and shimmer of icy creek waters

     stones turn underfoot, small and hard as toes

     cold nose dripping

     singing inside

     creek music, heart music,

     smell of sun on gravel.

     I pledge allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the soil

     of Turtle Island,

     and to the beings who thereon dwell

     one ecosystem

     in diversity

     under the sun

With joyful interpenetration for all.

                                            - Gary Snyder

But when in doubt... I also feel that...
