Gravesend [Mar. 22nd, 2014|12:06 pm]
Tony Grist
Gravesend is on the river, it's full of young people, marginal people, poor people, recent immigrants- and for all these reasons it has energy. Pocahontas, aka Matoaka, aka Rebecca Rolfe- first footer from the New World, mother of the first English-American child, person of multiple identities, crosser of boundaries, adventurer- is its genius loci. Her statue faces the river on which she died- arms widespread in greeting- Come all the world, whoever you are,  come death.....


Oh and the river is that river. The river. You know which river I mean...

The way you describe Gravesend is precisely the reason I love it so much. Friend of all the world! :o)

I'd like to live there. Don't suppose I ever will, but one can dream...

That's a wonderful invocation.
