Fifty Years of Justine and Susun, Page Three

1981: Susun and Justine swimming in the quarry pond. So much has gone on in the two years between the ducks and our swim. My land partnership ended. My heart was broken. I entered the dark night of my soul. Didn’t think I would ever return to the land of the living. But Justine was there, at least this summer, and life finds a way to go on.

1980: Tipi in the woods. Swimming in the nude in cold water helps when your heart is in pieces. But I needed more. So I moved into the tipi. Slept there every night. Swam every morning. It was here, in the tipi, in this period of grief that the plants began to talk to me. Really speak to me.
