Summer Days

vol. 9, num. 13 :: 2010.06.25 — 2010.07.08

Remember the feeling of getting out of school when you were a kid: the complete freedom of endless days with nothing to do except play in the yard? What do you remember most clearly about those days?

Even in a country you know by heart
its hard to go the same way twice
the life of the going changes.
The chances change and make a new way.
Any tree or stone or bird
can be the bud of a new direction. The
natural correction is to make intent
of accident. To get back before dark
is the art of going.

Wendell Berry
