We live off the land whether we feel it or not. We live off the work of others, and the life of plants and animals, and the gifts of the universe.
I have been studying the Inuit way of life, and trying to learn a little Inuktitut, which is their language. I have been eating so much fish, feeling like I am living in a past life somehow. So Willow decided that this year we’ll take up fishing! I am excited to catch my own fish and eat it, living in harmony with the land, listening to the water and watching the sky. It feels beautiful, I can’t wait for spring to come.
Nakurmiik! Iiraaluk, nakurmiik, anirniq. (Thank you! Yes indeed, thank you spirit.)
