Defend Nothing

 

“I dream of a quiet man

who explains nothing and defends

nothing, but only knows

where the rarest wildflowers

are blooming, and who goes,

and finds that he is smiling

not by his own will.”

Wendell Berry, Sabbath Poems 1999, II

When was the last time you unwillingly found yourself smiling? Spend more time there.
