Life is A Miracle

{Sauvie Island, Portland, OR} "Though we have life, it is beyond us. We do not know how we have it or why. We do not know what is going to happen to it, or to us. It is not predictable, though we can destroy it, we cannot make it. It cannot, except by reduction and the grave risk of damage, be controlled. It is as Blake said, holy. To think otherwise is to enslave life, and to make, not humanity, but a few humans its predictably inept masters." - Wendell Berry, Life is a Miracle
