In, but Not of, the World

Civic Dissent, Modern Ugliness, & the Search for Beauty

I’d like to set the stage for what follows by offering three quotes. The first is from the prolific farmer-poet, Wendell Berry:

war spreading, families dying, the world in danger,
I walk the rocky hillside, sowing clover.
