I do want national parks, and yet, I also, feel concern at how the parks are managed, mismanaged, or perhaps, not managed at all. In my area, we have the gift of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The big question involving a multitude of government agencies is how to allow access to it, and still preserve the "wildness" that is still there. The salmon do swim upstream. We have mountain lions and bobcats, and we have people who want to stroll the paths with earplugs in their ears.

Well, one proposal was a gondola style ski lift that would carry people across the valley. Currently, there is a fight against the helicopters and sea-planes that offer overhead views of Muir Woods. How is the sound of rotors whirring overhead conducive to meditation in the woods, or even privacy on my deck?

When, I heard how many interpretative centers were proposed for our area that somehow managed to be interpreted individually before, this was my response.

                 It seems the national parks need Interpretative Centers,
                            Churches - someone to intercede.
                                          What if we just walked out,
                                                 sat under the trees,       
                                                         and fed
                                                         the tide
