The struggle it is
Adorned with swiss chard

Practice resurrection

Mytulip The miracle of spring, the power of a manifesto / April 2011

"Go with your love to the fields.
Lie down in the shade. Rest your head
in her lap. Swear allegiance
to what is nighest your thoughts.
As soon as the generals and the politicos
can predict the motions of your mind,
lose it. Leave it as a sign
to mark the false trail, the way
you didn't go. Be like the fox
who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection."

~ from Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front by Wendell Berry
