This spring I was housebound for an extended period, recovering from an injury and surgery. A highlight of many days was the view out our windows across the treetops of Victoria to the Olympic Mountains. This article flowed from those days of contemplating how we humans create boundaries and borders that do not exist in nature – and then reinforce those boundaries by not looking beyond them.

Thanks to Simmons Buntin of Terrain for publishing this piece, and to Victoria photographers Karyn Stepien and Nathan Philps for contributing their wonderful photos of the Olympics as seen from the Victoria side of the water.
