Wes and Wendell
Early morning yoga by candlelight + a conversation between Wendell Berry and Wes Jackson = a blissed out way to start the day!
Some particularly blissful gems:
"We have to look to nature to learn how to farm."
"If we can begin to think about running agriculture on contemporary sunlight with no soil erosion, I think we have the basis for a new set of metaphors and we can begin to think about the end of economic growth."
"We are the environment. We are embodiments of the environment...We take our measures of the work we do...from the place we're in."
"We are embedded in a structure that gave rise to us. We didn't give rise to it."
"The only safeguard of abundance is temperance."
Two great minds there. Verily.
