The Poet Speaks Again

To live, we must daily break the body and shed the book of creation. When we do it knowingly, lovingly, skillfully, reverently, it is a sacrament. When we do it ignorantly, greedily, destructively, it is a desecration.

– Wendell Berry, The Gift of Good Land

  1. Berry’s comment speaks to me of having reverence for all of life – to discover that what is real is not found in the trivia accumulated on our walk through life, but rather in the grace that
    comes from loving its beauty and accepting what it brings.

  2. Chihuly glass does the same for me….spirit filled work.
