The Real Work

The Real Work

By Wendell Berry

It may be that when we no longer know what to do

we have come our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go

we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.

The impeded stream is the one that sings.

  1. Amen, sister, and a good meditation by one of my favorite poets for this Lenten season…
    “the way down is the way up.”
