I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

Hi Mr. Ellison

I recently watched a video you cohosted about Nantahala. It was very interesting. Even though I've lived fairly close to the river all my life I learned much about the area from your video.
