We are continuing our naming project - giving new names to favorite places, trees, plants... in the Preserve. Here are some from today: blueberry point, porcupine ledge, phoebe falls, ice eddy falls, scout camp, wood frog way. Do you have personal names for places in the Preserve you would share with us?



violets in the rock seam -
is the light in the water
is the light inside the stone
is the light moving
is that what I hear
is there light inside me
who is listening ?

This Preserve is a blessing
Grounding me more
with each step
Nature speaks to me saying "Everything is as it should be."

Thank you CREA
Namaste

from the CREA logbook:
Roses are red
violets are blue
We're out in nature.
Where are you?

"The sun is hot."

tree like a bow the
weight of the snow
arrows of light
our hearts, in flight


two eagles flying
above the river
flying directly
into your heart

election blues

red dragonflies
crunchy leaves
whistling acorn caps

these things begin
my long journey of healing
an election day
broken heart
