Journey to Calvary ...

Buck In The Falling Snow ...

“… I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

           ~ “The Peace of Wild Things”
                   ~ Wendell Berry
                        ~ born 1934
         ~ American novelist, poet, environmental activist, cultural critic & farmer
