The Threshold Between Heaven and Earth



“I know for a while again
the health of self-forgetfulness,
looking out at the sky through
a notch in the valleyside,
the black woods wintry on
the hills, small clouds at sunset
passing across. And I know
that this is one of the thresholds
between Earth and Heaven,
from which even I may step
forth and be free.”
– Wendell Berry from “Sabbath Poems”

  1. I love your blog! I grew up in the area and as I sit in a tiny room in the Bolivian Amazon your words, quotes, and your photos bring life to my soul! Thank you!


  2. Thank you, Patty and Tom! Your photos on your blog look so exotic – far outside my realm of experience and I’m sure full of many daily challenges. Makes our farm look pretty routine!
