It's definitely eccentric. Some might even think it is mad. But from time to time, I find it interesting to leave books out "in the wild." I also share books with others through the BookCrossing network of readers. If you possess one of the books from my bookshelf, I hope you are happy to have it. It is an unconditional gift with an invitation to experiment. Come join the stories of our books here at BookCrossing.

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
