Origins

Today’s episode of At Water’s Edge is called “Origins”; we explore our roots, our beginnings, our origins. That can take many forms, depending on your personal mythos, so we go exploring in the Garden, in polar ice, in the stars, in the roots of trees, and more.

Where do we begin…

As you may know, recently I moved to a little town on the inland waterways of North Carolina — so, yes, we are still at water’s edge. I’m here for my mother, but interestingly, despite our all scattering to the four winds when we were younger, my father was born in a little town about 50 miles from here, and much of that family has been rooted here for generations.

Our personal beginnings, our cultural beginnings, our planetary beginnings… we all start somewhere, and those starting points all help define who we are individually and collectively. Who we are as individuals is a culmination of all those things, and what we do with the knowledge of those things along the way.
