|"Peace be with you."|
Setting rock upon rock and achieving the necessary balance and structural strength brings satisfaction. There is a timelessness to the inukshuk. We feel the connection to like-minded souls in the misty expanse of time. That, perhaps, is the enduring quality every one of these shoreside symbols expresses.
Perhaps this is the great appeal of paddling a simple craft, hill-walking, and running along forest trails. They are enduring, self-propelled activities that have always been a part of our inherent human desire to explore and to discover.
