KCT Thought of the Week, September 2, 2011

“Memories opened to him as aisles open among the trees when you are walking in the woods.  He was drawn back toward an old feeling that had strung the generations together like beads on a string.  The feeling could not be expressed, but had to be talked around.  It had to do with the summation of the year, the fields giving up their bounty, the earth multiplying each thing after its kind.  The feeling was as inward and powerful as lovesickness.”  Wendell Berry “That Distant Land”
