The Cold Within by James Patrick Kinney

My father quit school in the 10th grade to support his mother, but he spent the rest of his life reading widely, and attempting self-education.  At some point, he fell in love with poetry, and wrote some himself.  He had studied older poets, and wrote in a somewhat archaic style, which was quite out of fashion.  Still, one of his poems has achieved immortality.  Fifty years after it was written, and many years after my father's death, The Cold…

“Grow wheat?

Kenge, what do you mean, grow wheat?”

“We can grow wheat,” he tells me. “I know we can grow wheat.”

Lance and Kenge were confident, convincing,

The organic farming revolution...

"People will tell you the organic farming revolution that's taking place is about food safety or ecolgical concerns, but I think if you dig down deep, you'll find that the revolution is really about what people are missing in their lives: good food and a connection to the land, both of which puts us in touch with basic spiritual values."

from The Sun Magazine: "Earthly Delights, Cultivating a new Agricultural Revolution: An Interview with Michael Abelman", by Arnie Cooper, June 2003
