A Lasting ImpressionLeonard Dokis managed to leave an impression even on me, depsite never having met him. There is a modern, yet charming interpretive centre on the edge of the French River Provincial Park, run by Ontario Parks. The centre contains numerous displays explaining the geology, history, nature, human history and culture of the French River. Some of these displays are interactive, including recordings of local people telling stories. One had struck a chord with me on my first visit to the centre several years ago. On a more recent trip I made a recording of my own using my camera. It contains what I consider to be some wise words about our relationship with nature, how we need to slow down to see more and the impressions we leave behind. Click the play button below to listen. The man speaking is Leonard Dokis.
