Beltaine, again

Liked it 7 years ago.
Still do.

“It is easy for me to imagine that the next great division of the world will be between people who wish to live as creatures and people who wish to live as machines.” 
Wendell Berry, Life is a Miracle

The increasing light, the returning horseshoe crabs, the bay rising, falling, and rising again, remind me what I'll forget again in a moment. If I were not mortal, the forgetting would not be sin.

But I am, and it is.

Bealtaine again.

Just wanted to say how much I appreciate all of the things you are sharing here. As a fan of Wendell Berry, I am always happy to meet another, and your words in general carry a similar wisdom through. I am a home educator and sans colleagues as such, some days I just need to see sense outside myself. I was glad to stumble on your blog today. Thanks for putting all of this out there for the rest of us.
