AN IMPRESSION PUT IN THE GROUND BY AN INDIVIDUAL IS A SMALL EVENT WITHIN A LANDSCAPE, YET IMPRESSION IS THE WORD WE USE TO DESCRIBE THE EFFECT A STORY HAS ON US. MARKS ON THE LAND AND SOUL ARE TELLING OF THE EVOLVING AND INTERCONNECTED MAKE-UP OF BOTH GEOGRAPHY AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. PLACE IS ITSELF TEMPORALLY LAYERED; A PALIMPSEST OF THE MULTIPLE TRACES LEFT BY INDIVIDUALS, CULTURES, AND ELEMENTS. THE IMPRESSIONS HERE ARE ARE SOMETIMES LITERALLY EMBEDDED WITHIN THE LANDSCAPE, OR COMMEMORATE A NATURAL EVENT. AUTOBIOGRAPHY AND GEOGRAPHY UNITE WHILE THE MARKS REVEAL THE LAND AS A REPOSITORY OF HISTORICAL MEMORY; OF TRACES OF PAST AND THEIR COMPLEX CONNECTIONS TO OTHER PLACES AND PEOPLES.
