Texte de l'oeuvre: 

Anneau intérieur :

«My grandparents homesteaded that piece of land back over there. I grew up here but moved down to Toronto. I lived there for 25 years and then I came back here.»

 

Anneau central :

«When I was growing up here I remember the sound of the frogs being so loud. Then they died down to almost nothing. Since DDT has been outlawed for a few years now they've come back again.»

 

Anneau extérieur :

«The tent caterpillars are bad again this year. Do you remember that year, a good 20 years ago now, when they were so bad? They took out a wide straight swath of forest in their path.»
