"Magic Fox"

Riding the Earthboy 40: poems, by James Welch

They shook the green leaves down,
those men that rattled
in their sleep. Truth became
a nightmare to their fox.
He turned their horses into fish,
or was it horses strung
like fish, or fish like fish
hung naked in the wind?

Stars fell upon their catch.
A girl, not yet twenty-four
but blonde as morning birds, began
a dance that drew the men in
green around her skirts.
In dust her magic jangled memories
of dawn, till fox and grief
turned nightmare in their sleep.

Laying a foundation for peace, one tile at a time

The "Community Spirit Monument" features tiles created by 2,000 plus Flathead Valley residents.
Katrin Frye

A grassroots human rights organization in the Flathead is building upon its anti-hate message, literally. The group “Love Lives Here” teamed up with local artists and people from across the community created ceramic tiles spelling out messages of love and peace through words and pictures. The first step of this project happened with the construction of a tile-lined gazebo in 2008. This month the group is unveiling several tiled-lined benches as an addition to the monument.

Autumn Leaves

"Fieldnotes," October 6th & 7th, 2013: "Leaf Fall," by Peter Lesica, Anne Garde,  Caroline Kurtz. http://www.montananaturalist.org/

"As autumn progresses, trees prepare for winter by stopping the production of chlorophyll, the green pigment that captures light. The leaves gradually change color as nutrients are withdrawn and transferred to roots and stems. At the same time, enzymes digest the cells at the base of the leaf stalk forming an abscission layer, or scar. When digestion is complete, the leaf falls off."
