Republic of Grass is a sense of place, a state of mind, a state of grace. It is a story that must be told to the next generation, a light to illuminate the right questions. Republic of Grass is an ancient homeland with many citizens and no definable boundaries. It can be inhabited, explored and cherished, but it cannot be owned. If this does not dismay you, you are heartily welcome here.
