"In the immediate world, everything is to be discerned..with the whole of consciousness, seeking to perceive it as it stands: so that the aspect of a street in sunlight can roar in the heart of itself as a symphony, perhaps as no symphony can: and all consciousness is shifted from the imagined, the revisive, to the effort to perceive simply the cruel radiance of what is."

HoeingI sometimes fear the younger generation
will be deprived of the pleasures of hoeing;
there is no knowing how many souls have been formed by this simple exercise. The dry earth like a great scab breaks, revealing moist-dark loam -- the pea-root's home, a fertile wound perpetually healing. How neatly the great weeds go under! The blade chops the earth new. Ignorant the wise boy who has never rendered thus the world fecunder. -John Updike
