    The Peace of Wild Things

    When despair for the world grows in me
    and I wake in the night at the least sound
    in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
    I go and lie down where the wood drake
    rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
    I come into the peace of wild things
    who do not tax their lives with forethought
    of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
    And I feel above me the day-blind stars
    waiting with their light. For a time
    I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.


    - Wendell Berry

    Dear friends from Canada visited Bear in the hospital yesterday.  Listening to music together and being with them really brightened him up.  He slept soundly the rest of the day!  We hope that we can get him closer to home soon.
