Excerpt

Cyclic existence, connected.I've been told I express time differently. If it is thinking years ago was the other day or needing the immediacy to know now. Time can be the reliant, the dependent, the lost lover or the dream. Does time exists mostly within need? The need to get somewhere; for a day to come, for yesterday to be gone? 'll exclude a vocabulary that is not necessarily mine. I will experience as I hope you will, in all the moments, movements and a vision of the time we spend/spent. Without community we don't exist. I truly believe that. it has been what I was raised to understand. Thou it was never said that way. A knowledge, a way of life I receive from my Grandparents, my mother, father, aunties, uncles, the community, as they work together. All in moments of happiness and complete sadness, together. If time truly exists in a linear way, then the true understanding is in the black waters.Yet from what stories are presented in this anthology, time/community is one.Yesterday is formed around the stories as much as tomorrow is. We travel through visions of what can be reimagined, re-experienced out of the days before us and into the days ahead. From around Mother Earth, the indigenous voices of emerging and practiced writers are in the following pages. We go deep into their communities, their visions, their creations, their experiences. Poetry, prose, stories that allow the reader to know, the fire never went out, the community is alive, connected to the land and the people. Darlene Naponse
