(black bamboo shoots)
Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.Wendell Berry
I've been ruing the fact that I am driven by biology--somewhat like the rats and roaches. So much is required to keep the form working.
Like eating. I love food--don't get me wrong. But it takes a lot of time to find food, prepare, and eat it. Why can't we just eat once a week? Or even once a day....
Showers--I mean, really. Some days I just don't even want to get wet.
Sleep? Mini death every night? And theoretically it takes up 1/3 of your life.
But Justice and Mercy--those are always welcome and always in season. Surely. Goodness, too.
