way of the canoe

To paddle is to plug into the energies of the place, the land, the air, the water, the ancestors, the children who are yet to be born… The paddle connects us to all of that. To travel by canoe is to ponder where we came from, where we are, where we’re going, who we were, who we are and who we can be. To pull is to connect to the waters, the rocks, the forests, the skies, all the creatures of the Earth, then the people.
