living, listening

toast

I love my days home with Reed, full of smiling at each other, learning things, doing my small things around the house- practicing thrift and home economics (in the true sense of the word) in little ways that I find so immensely satisfying.

Today, I listened to this talk by Wendell Berry for the 10th time (#6 “Our Land, Our Food, Our Responsibility”).  It always helps me to remember.

I like what he says, here, in one of his poems:

“Hope to become kinder than power instructs you to be
and hope to become poorer than wealth invites you to be”

Enjoy your Friday, everyone.
