Reflecting on the first attempt at #100Days this year, and all of the footage I don’t know what to do with.
The images are from the Sac & Fox Natureway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Allowing myself to abandon these early components are proving hard, as I love how the land looks on video. Additionally, I feel like I cannot let it go since this space is soon to be eradicated / fundamentally changed for Cargill’s disgusting rail yard.
I am overcome by the privilege I have to move away and begin again in a city where the environment’s health and restoration is so meticulously woven into the city planning. I feel that privilege like a guilty stone around my neck when I look at all of my videos featuring beautiful cone flowers and wild milkweed.
My heart is so heavy for the floodplain.
