Presenting the key (Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia)

A key to a better understanding of our native spaciousness in place making is that our inhabitation of places is no simple identity.

We are never securely identified with any particular local constellation of meaning, but also never secure above it all in rational insight or irony. Our "place" is within the motions of the process.
