Back to Basics

'Too often, man has tried to ignore or legislate out of existence this fundamental truth – that one must plant before he reaps, that one must earn before he spends, that one must learn before he understands. Cause, and effect. And the greatest teacher in such matters is the earth, nature, life itself.'
--from Hill Country Harvest, a book published in 1967 by Hal Borland. A special thanks to the wry & learned bunch of creative rascals who pointed me to this timely bit of wisdom, the sublimely named Wooster, Ohio-based Monkey Mensch Gang.
