A new series, Murmurations, borrowing a wonderful metaphor from Rebecca Solnit. 

"a murmuration, one of those great flocks of birds in flight that seems to swell and contract and shift as the myriad individual creatures climb and bank and turn together, not crashing into each other, not drifting apart."

"Pity the land that thinks it needs a hero, or doesn't know it has lots and what they look like." 

Solnit, "When the Hero is the Problem"
New work-in-development for the series Forms of Protection in the US Landscape

The piece below is a view of the California Pinole Point Regional Shoreline and Coastal Restoration Project seen from the West Coast Detention Center that abuts it. The title refers to language on immigration detention beds in  Congressional appropriation laws since 2009. According to the National Immigration Justice Center, "no other law enforcement agency is subject to a real or perceived quota for its detainees."
