Now back in Idaho after nine years in exile on the east coast. Happy to
be back in God's Country. Hope to stick around a while.
"In a country where nature has been so lavish and where we have been so
spendthrift of indigenous beauty, to set aside a few rivers in their natural
state should be considered an obligation."

RIVER RELIGIONSome people channel Deepthink the riverflow stay out of the rocky Ripple-driven shallows. No limbs or laterals They stay with the mainwater As if it were a matter Of morals not a mosaic Of undeclared principals: Laptime, swirls & eddies. It's right to be centered No wrinkles like bad skinfit No assortment of illusions On memory's rack. The faithful raft not to drown Find the safest way down Jujuing watergods With bottomless hope & never-ending fear. All camptalk & riverrhetoric As if it were homilies Not hydraulics that got them here. The sinner, save his soul Is out there somewhere Playing in a hole. --William Studebaker
