author’s note

“Lummi Island is place like any other. You would probably be disappointed to discover that it has its share of pavement and subdivisions, growth issues, and community strife. With more people, even just curious visitors, it seems to become less of itself. My hope is that you will begin to see the place you live as I have seen Lummi Island, that you will find the poetry in your own home place. And that if your place is too far removed from its source to hold poetry, that you will strike your roots deeper and wipe some of the debris off the surface, until the poetry begins to appear.” Luther Allen, afterword, The View from Lummi Island
