“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. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”
― Wendell Berry, The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture
You’ll notice in many of my photos that there aren’t really, well, people. It’s kind of on purpose. In a community where Smart Phones are rare, cameras are even more un-head-of. Call me an over-thinker, but I struggle to whip out my camera (or smart phone with a camera) when someone is doing something cool, so I can capture their image and put it on my blog. It feels too much like exploitation. I prefer asking people’s permission, even if they’re not sure what a “blog” is. 😉 For those who love photos, here’s some. For those who want photos of people, well you’ll have to settle for the stories I tell. But occasionally, I’ll spoil with you some faces!
