"Sharp, quirky, and occasionally nettlesome", Walking the Berkshires is my personal blog, an eclectic weaving of human narrative, natural history, and other personal passions with the Berkshire and Litchfield Hills as both its backdrop and point of departure. I am interested in how land and people, past and present manifest in the broader landscape and social fabric of our communities. The opinions I express here are mine alone. Never had ads, never will.
This week's piece in the Lakeville Journal, readable here with free registration. Fair use excerpt:
"We see the same world with a different sense of time. I, who have known some of life’s limitations and lost opportunities, have a job that has me thinking in forest time, but a personal life that is rooted in middle age and a sense of time’s passing.
He sees the forest that is there in the seed and is not discouraged by the thought that it will be a lifetime before his vision is realized."
