Ask the questions that have no answers.
Invest in the millenium. Plant sequoias.
Say that your main crop is the forest
that you did not plant,
that you will not live to harvest.
Thank you to my friend Coree where I spotted the beautiful Wendell Berry quote on her Facebook page. It expresses exactly the feelings I have for our role as caretakers of our planet. We are only part of the cycle, yet human beings in our very existence take such a heavy tole on the environment around us. So, it’s fitting while the red buds and dogwoods are in bloom that at least one day is set aside to express our gratitude to the beauties around us.
