The big dry country

Gravity is the root of grace,
The mainstay of all speed.
A traveler of true means, whatever the day’s pace,
Remembers the provision-van . . . (The Way of Life – Witter Bynner translation)

Our provisions are water, soil, air and seed.

Blessings are rain, and earth worms, and live seeds and air we can breathe freely, wildly.

And the sunlight, waiting to be harvested freely and peacefully.

How to preach the obvious, without preaching.   I don’t know.

Gravity and grace

earth africa nasaGravity is the root of grace,
The mainstay of all speed.

(The way of life, Witter Bynner translation, Chapter 26)

This chapter is about not running away with oneself.  Yet moving with skill as a student of gravity and nature, balance and wonderful speed is possible.  Speed not so much for winning as for wonder.

Watch here . . .
