Andy Catlett started it!

I first “met” Andy in A World Lost  by Wendell Berry, and from there went on to meet Hannah, Nathan, Jaybar and the many other characters. These are some of my favorite books of all time, they are beautifully written. As such I was delighted when I saw these two newspaper pieces honoring Wendell Berry.

Too often it seems as if the really fabulous books and authors are overlooked for yet another knitting romance, troubled childhood memoir or vampire story. Wendell Berry’s books are timeless ones, think Laura Ingalls for adults, that are so filled with richness and human character. And he writes poetry too! Here is just one of my favorites:

…………..On the Theory of the Big Bang 

…………..as the Origin of the Universe

…………… ..I.
………………What banged?

………………II.
………………Before banging
………………how did it get there?

………………III.
………………When it got there
………………Where was it?

(Just a little mental fuel to start your week!)
