The Riverpeople- Bernadette returns

I was crashing through the arundo in a slapstick attempt to track a coyote when I stumbled across Bernadette. She visits the river almost every day now to walk her dog or just to visit. She misses sleeping on the river but she understands those days are gone. She showed me a nest that she found on the ground and asked me what I was doing there. “Um… tracking a coyote.” “Why didn’t you ask?” She said. “I’ll take you to them.” And she did. She also showed me where the rabbits live (weirdly close to the coyote den) and a secret place to cross the river.

So many decisions are being made concerning the river by people in offices who have never even wet their feet in it. Bernadette knows every inch of the river, and everything on it, and how they interplay. I told her this and she laughed and said. “I am the River” and was gone.

I want to be there…now
