The 1st wave came just after Christmas
- or the Winter Solstice
They came from the South, in their hundreds - at least there were 100 or so tents pitched on the frozen lake - at least I hope it was frozen - the tents came and went during the coming days until now there are fewer than a dozen, a sign maybe that the ice was not thick enough - or, maybe, that the ice on Lake Simcoe can now bear their weight and irresponsibility - to First Responders.
They were after our water. 100 years ago we exported it to Chicago and New York. Now they come to us. So far, in peace - but then, they are not "homeless" yet; Miami and New York have not flooded their drinking water with salt - yet. 2nd homes - tents, Tent city for non refugees. Complete with propane heaters.
are no elders to retrieve the Eagle Feather, to return it to the fallen.
