    The river can be heard throughout the campus. And by campus, I mean loose grouping of 15+ buildings that comprise the Vermont Studio Center, nestled around the Gihon River.

    I have come to the riverbank, 3396 miles in a bug spattered car, landed and stood up. A year to reflect in it's tremble and quake.

    Having become settled after passing the Missouri River, this surfacing of a deeper calm could almost be alarming, the way it just showed up and rooted in my chest. A new seed on its way to becoming a tree.

    I cannot write more tonight, besides the pages in my journal....
