Break free of the boundaries

It is time to put a little more natural law into our lives.

It is time to put a little more natural law into our lives. Boundaries have come up recently as our local political boundary is about to change.

Boundaries from a contemporary and historical perspective have been determined by politics, economics and religion. We are due for a change. Let us be bounded by something that never changes — gravity. Let us be bounded by watersheds.

The Headwaters of the Columbia River is an entity unto itself, compromised of many watersheds.

The watershed of the Kootenay River is where you live. It would be so easy to divide the land upon which we live into watersheds.

Man has played with boundaries ever since man began. It is time to get it right. What do you want to be bounded by, politics, economics and religion, or natural law — gravity?
