“Heaven Must Be A Kentucky Kind Of Place”.
Daniel Boone Wendell Berry
“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life.

His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake

To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
“The more we know,
the more pain we have.
But because we are human beings,
this must be.
Otherwise we become objects rather than subjects.”
Thinking and holding all those in the North Eastern states in my thoughts and prayers- Sending love, warmth- Stay safe

ARTHUR SYMONS, “Veneta Marina”
Maybe it was the scent of
the ink and not so much
the words scrawled on the

begging you to find
