Let us go then, you and I ...

Today, I …

Sharpened the mower blades and

changed the oil; it was a return

to the summer rhythm — but

not the summer rhythm of late August

when I yearn for September’s cool days

to slow the growth of grass and let

me leave the mower untouched.

This was the new rhythm of early spring,

when I hunger for the grass to grow,

for the trees to bloom,

for the birds to sing.

On his show last night, Stephen Colbert ribbed us a little bit for our new circular logo — and how it often changes with the news each day. How would we cover a story that wasn’t circular in nature? What if the story was about SpongeBob SquarePants? Or Doritos? Or the Pentagon?

Well, Mr. Colbert: Here’s what we’d do. And stay tuned for how we’d handle the ultimate challenge: a story about SpongeBob eating Doritos at the Pentagon.

Love the quick profit, the annual raise,
vacation with pay. Want more
of everything ready-made. Be afraid
to know your neighbors and to die.
And you will have a window in your head.
Not even your future will be a mystery
any more. Your mind will be punched in a card
and shut away in a little drawer.
When they want you to buy something
they will call you. When they want you
to die for profit they will let you know.

So, friends, every day do something
that won’t compute. Love the Lord.
Love the world. Work for nothing.
Take all that you have and be poor.
Love someone who does not deserve it.
Denounce the government and embrace
the flag. Hope to live in that free
republic for which it stands.
Give your approval to all you cannot
understand. Praise ignorance, for what man
has not encountered he has not destroyed.

Wendell Berry, Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front
