The Land

I've been reading a chapter by Linda Hogan called 'Creations'. It's part of a book called The Heart of the Land : Essays on Last great Places, edited by Joseph Barbato and Lisa Weinerman. The book came out in the 1990's but it still has great relevance today, perhaps even more so

Linda Hogan writes with astonishing beauty and love about the connection between the land and people, all living beings. Her words are a call to memory, renewal, the sacredness of life

.'We remember our ancestors and their lives deep in our bodily cells', just as turtles she describes return to the beach where they were born. The deep mystery of it all.
