Does this make me feel better about not knowing whether to ignore the news completely or go part-time at my job and start volunteering with the ACLU? Not really. But I think it’s good to hear.
The Real Work
by Wendell Berry
It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
