the story behind the R2R image
The image for the virtual Rural Talks to Rural conference this year is a photograph taken by Kelly Rebar in the late summer of 2020. The image is of rural British Columbia, in the interior of the Province, near Nelson. She didn’t know at the time that the sun would be distorted like it is. The distortion is caused by the smoke in the air from the California, Oregon and Washington wildfires – a thousand miles away.
We are connected and we share this place with a whole jumble of others, and many others that are to come – our next steps need to be taken with great care and consideration.
