It’s an article of my faith and belief, that all creatures live by breathing God’s breath and participating in his spirit. And this means that the whole thing is holy.  The whole shooting match. 
There are no sacred and un-sacred places, there are only sacred and desecrated places. 
So finally I see those gouges in the surface mine country 
as desecrations, not just as land abuse,  but as desecration. As blasphemy."
--- Wendell Berry on Moyers and Co., November 29, 2013


There are some years that just seem to be special. 

1969 was one of those years.  From the Left Coast to Woodstock (and throughout Europe) young people like myself were brazenly dancing ahead, bringing on the Revolution.  The stars were aligned just right or something.  We thought it was a done deal.  We were home free.  

Obviously, we thought wrong. 

Well, today I found out that 1934 must have been one of those special years, too.  Both Wendell Berry and Bill Moyers were born that year.  As this episode of Moyers and Co. shows, the Revolution is still on.  

In it for the long haul, Berry and Moyers show us exactly what the Revolution takes.  79 years and counting, each of these two treasures is still bringing it.
