An ode to place in the form of a 1.5 minute video-poem

In this era of continued sheltering-in-place, with our worlds shrinking (despite the irony of being ever-more-closely connected by a virus) to a a homestead, a room, a pod, a bubble, and a few guarded external routines, as an artist/writer/contemplative soul, I wanted to create something that helped renew our battered psyches, expand our horizons.

This poem is my effort to create an expansive ode to place.

Despite being over a decade in the making, the video is a mere one minute, thirty-seven seconds long. It is “unlisted” on YouTube – which means you can only view it with a direct link. It isn’t searchable or public, because I’ve entered it into a few competitions and I’m awaiting the outcome.

In the meantime, I encourage you to enjoy this glimpse of Mendocino county, through one author’s lens.
