Quote for the day: on perspective and place

"...this is the work of an old kind of mind, of long attention and familiarity...The shapes of these old fields were not laid down by an eye sighting above the surface of the land but by many eyes looking up from and out of an ancient usage and familiarity; they were not imposed on the land but grew out of it." ~~ Wendell Berry, "Irish Journal" in Home Economics
