Why Do We Fish?

Like the finest umbilicus, casting your line into water joins you to it.  The currents speak to your bones in iced tongues.  The loam perfume of conifer rot and mud attunes your nose to the local biology.  You taste its chemistry, wash your ears in its sweet white noise, let it take you back to a time before words and teach you the things language never could.  ~ Jessica Maxwell
