Reading

I just finished Alan Watts' The Wisdom of Insecurity.  All I can say is, "wow."  I couldn't read it too fast or all at once--lots and lots to chew on here.  He was such well-studied man--once an Episcopal Priest, well versed in science and also Asian religions and traditions.  He gives me always so much to think about in the weekly podcast I subscribe to for free on iTunes.

Another book I read off and on is The Selected Poems of Wendell Berry.  I read mostly his prose, and he has such a simple yet poignant way of helping us see our madness of destroying the earth.  He's a Kentucky farmer as well as a gifted writer.  This cross-section of poetry spanning a good long while brings me back on cold, quiet evenings.
