If Place is where humans live in relationship with other forms of life—plants,
trees, animals, the elements—Sand River's most immediate sphere is our community and all that lives within it. Next, is the natural, uncultivated world surrounding our cultivated landscape, and beyond that are other human neighborhoods and resources. Each is another concentric sphere beyond the last, ultimately encompassing Santa Fe, the mountains, our southwestern region, etc. The following links will take you to the various circles that make up Sand River's ripples in the Place where we live.
LANDSCAPE • ANIMALS • ARROYOS • RESOURCES • SANTA FE • SEASONS
"The displacement of
a little sand
can change occasionally
the course of deep rivers."
—Manuel Gonzalez Prada
