A Warning To My Readers
Do not think me gentle because I speak in praise of gentleness,
or elegant because I honor the grace that keeps this world.
I am a man crude as any, gross of speech,
intolerant, stubborn, angry, full of fits and furies.
That I may have spoken well at times, is not natural.
A wonder is what it is.
— Wendell Berry
A favorite author of mine. A farmer who was into sustainable agriculture before they even called it that. An environmentalist before being one was trendy. A steward of the land not for accolades, but because it is the right way to live. A lover of God and God’s creation.
