"In my roaming, I was always looking for Place. Found place in San Diego back country in 1973. First night, bed-rolled in the big fireplace of a miner’s shack beside a running creek. The land was an Ipai kitchen site, turned out. Daily reminders of heritage and seasonal cycles-- we transitory walk on sacred ground. Sharing the beauty that surrounds us, in ceremonies here over the years, we hope to connect community to old and new ways . . . to renew and practice . . . to ground and to take responsibility."
