I am a lover of words – the way they sing together in neat or sprawling lines upon the page, conducted by the great wordsmiths of all time. The way a sudden turn of phrase or surprising combination of sounds resonates with the deep within me, causing pause: moments of reflection and appreciation that transcend the superficial babblings and paltry visions of the infantile. Here at the deepening ground, it is my intent to make time and space for the reflection, appreciation, and creative imaginings that sustain the human soul.
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls.Pslam 42:7 (NIV)
Eat earth! Dig deep! Drink water!J.R.R. Tolkien (Tom Bombadil)
…Plant sequoias. / Say that your main crop is the forest / that you did not plant / that you will not live to harvest.Wendell Berry (Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front)
