Town of the Hills
My eldest daughter, Sara, is dreaming. I found her plans … Town of the Hills … a place she has made on paper and wants to make somewhere in the tangle that is my back yard.
In the article With or Against Culture?, Jean Elshtain speaks of Augustine’s “‘immoderate love of the world’ [that] includes friendship and the canny ways human beings craft and build with care.”
Elshtain is talking about my Sara, and my Sonia, who built and photographed what you see above… and she is talking about me… I love to craft and build with care, especially with words. Yes, I have an immoderate love of the world, that I carry with me through towns and hills and forests.
God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. Genesis 1:31
