Because It Is Shameful That In This Country, Where There is Enough Food To Feed Every Man, Woman and Child, One in Six people Faces Hunger . . .

"The Feeding America network secures and provides food for families in need; operates programs that promote self-sufficiency; educates the public about hunger; and advocates for legislation that protects people from going hungry."

Hunger hurts all year long, but it hurts more at Thanksgiving.

Kilt Monday!

'Cause let's face it,
Mondays can be so rough, hard, difficult.

The Peace of Wild Things

 - Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
