SEA TO SKY REVIEW : THE RIVER
VOLUME 2. ISSUE 1. APRIL 2019
We were considering salmon theme for this issue and wondering what time of year the smolt swim back to the sea. Of course, it is in the spring, and they travel down the river - the Squamish, the Cheakamus, the Mamquam. What a glorious thing that must be, after a life of flickering in streams and tiny ponds. To swim suddenly without effort in the fresh rushing waters of river. The fish will eventually swirl in the wide mix of fresh and salt on the estuaries and deltas then slip into the massive green world of ocean. But they’ll keep the memory of that river run. They’ll long for it. They’ll want it. THE RIVER is this month’s theme and we have some wonderful poetry for you. As well we’re pleased to share the lovely art of Janet Kvammen and photography from Christine Rice. And finally, for the young at heart, a dainty fable by new Squamish writer Christine Rice which explores a love affair between River and Sun.
