I’m starting to see signs of spring. Birds hopping everywhere, buds welling up on spindly branches, light-filled leaves. I wanted to write something on this art journal page, but all my words have already been penned by Wendell Berry! Every time I pick up his book, “A Timbered Choir,” I am drawn in by the presence of the simple enjoyment of nature, the delight in birdsong and leaves and the course of the seasons. After a rough day, it was good to finally break the painting hiatus with this page.
Haven’t read any of Wendell Berry’s poems? Here is the one that inspired the name of my blog.
