The Cold Within by James Patrick Kinney

Posted by Tim Kinney on June 24, 2011 at 10:06am 9 Comments

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…

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

The Empanada Brotherhood, by John Nichols

“The Empanada Brotherhood“ is one of my favorite books.

John Nichols doesn’t do email. I wrote him a letter telling him how much I enjoyed his book. He wrote back. A handwritten postcard. He has…See More
