Last Fragment

December 1st, 2008

There are those who don’t have a deep spiritual connection with nature.  Their lives will always be limited, despite how much meaning they may find in dressing well, in the arts and in social relations between solid walls.

And then there are those who will understand the following poem by Raymond Carver:

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.
