The Value of Wetlands
These are in- between spaces, looking like wasteland, with rotting matter and unattractive growth. Sometimes cities rush to clear these spaces and reclaim them as real estate.
When that happens, it is like reclaiming the night, the time we need to rest, change, make sense of our world, retain important information for our survival.
Our lists and debris get churned and dumped out by the morning light.
Go ahead. Let things be for a while.
Your own thoughts need to perculate through sandy banks, reedy channels, before they can become clear and recognizable.
Evolution takes time.
