A brisk and early Saturday morning in the woods...

After a week hard-worked and well-spent, we needed to shed our heaviness in a blessed place of singing, vision and flight. My 3 year old son took my hand as we walked and asked, "Mom, are we looking for God?"


by Wendell Berry

I part the out thrusting branches
and come in beneath
the blessed and the blessing trees

Though I am silent
there is singing around me.

Though I am dark
there is vision around me.

Though I am heavy
there is flight around me.

Add (Valeri Gorbachev's) *Where's the Apple Pie?* to your list of favorite apple books. No learning there, but lots of fun!
