Prairie Land

Grasses hold this world together. Leaves and stems cover the landscape and observe and engage. The roots probe and spread deep below to house and protect what is beneath. Grasses bind the junction between the past and the present, between the ground and sky.

When there is no soil, where rock is strewn and dominates there is no grass. There is no record of the past or the present. Grass is the neuronal network of the landscape. It is the recording of the past, the recording of memory and witness to the present. 

When you walk across the grassbound land what do you see, what do you remember and what do you feel?
