Feigning Optimism

Dont listen to me, i just get too excited about everything

“A society that allows thousands of homeless people to roam the streets with no protection for their bodies; that spends, on the average, more for the last week of a dying elderly person’s hospital care than for the medical needs of the first ten years of a child’s life; that refuses in international congresses to join other nations in protecting biodiversity and limiting chemicals that contribute to global warming: this society hates the body, human bodies, and all other animal and plant bodies that make up the body of our planet.”

These are my books. I like stories with magic powers in them. Either in kingdoms on Earth or on foreign planets. Usually I prefer a girl hero, but not always. (Moonrise Kingdom, 2012)

When I hear the stock market has fallen, 
I say, ‘Long live gravity! Long live
stupidity, error, and greed in the palaces
of fantasy capitalism!’ I think
an economy should be based on thrift,
on taking care of things, not on theft,
usury, seduction, waste, and ruin.

Wendell Berry—”Some Further Words”

“Put bluntly, the American church today accepts grace in theory but denies it in practice. We say we believe that the fundamental structure of reality is grace, not works-but our lives refute our faith. By and large, the gospel of grace is neither proclaimed, understood, nor lived. Too many Christians are living in the house of fear and not in the house of love.”

Seven Rules For True Farmer’s Market Love
1) Set your alarm. I don’t care that it’s Saturday. The best Farmer’s Market is the 8 AM Farmer’s Market. The dawn-picked strawberries and the almond croissants will be gone by 8:30.
2) Don’t forget your basket.
3) Don’t you dare eat breakfast first. The crepe guy might be there again. Arrive hungry and leave stuffed.
4) Don’t forget your wad of cash. And always bring $20 more than you think you should bring.
5) Once you’re there, for heaven’s sake, don’t be in a rush. You’re gonna see everyone you know. It’s a shop ‘n chat.
6) If you eat meat, buy all of it here. It’s not only better for you. It’s better for the planet. Choices like this change the world.
7) Compliment your vendors. Make sure they know how fantastic, creative, and appreciated they are. Ask them questions about how they do things. They’ll love to tell you all about it. It’s people like this who make your community interesting. Make sure they know it.

“Books always had this very powerful effect on me because of some communication, somebody seeming even in a very symbolic or displaced way to understand what I was feeling. And I think that is the miracle of literature, is this private communication between one intelligence and another.”
