The Peace of Wild Things

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

GMO OMG – the film

http://www.gmofilm.com/trailer.aspx

I encourage as many people as possible to view the Trailer to this beautiful and important film by award-winning filmmaker Jeremy Seifert, which is about to debut across North America. GMOs are in our food supply. Oh My God! What does this mean to us? Follow the journey of a conscientious dad across America in search of pure unadulterated food and his little son who loves to collect seeds. His search takes him from Haiti where farmers burn Monsanto’s GMO seeds, to a dancer in love with the rhythms of the earth, to poets and ordinary and extraordinary farmers, educators, geneticists, common folk, supermarkets, all the while trying to answer his bright young son’s questions about seeds, food and life. And it goes deep into a frozen mountain in Norway to the famed world repository seed bank, and to the stars, vibrant with the pulse of life. This film will change your view of the world we all share for the better. It may make you cry with the hope it envisages. AS
