The Arts on Salt Spring

Time and the ocean, and some fostering star,
In high cabal have made us what we are.

* A group of islands in the Salish Sea, for which name I am in deep debt to "Lady Godiva" (as we all are who are dwellers here on Salt Spring and would call this haven home, or this home a haven). The Salish Sea is an inland sea, east of the sun and somewhat on the wild side of elsewhere.

Read what the worms write on the madrone leaf, and walk sideways.
