fragility and sacredness of water, including walking around all the Great
Lakes down to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. In 2011, Josephine
embarked on her most ambitious walk yet: to collect four pails of water
from Hudson Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific
Ocean, ending at the Great Lakes.
