Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.

Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”

I am a working woman.
I am one who looks for hope in all things.
"I am a mystic, a naturalist and a transcendentalist in one."
I am a mother.
I am a wife.
I am a gardener, canner, simple life liver.
I am a teacher, a quilter, a pacifist.
I am a liberal, tree hugging, justice loving earth mother.
I am striving for faith.
I am searching for patience.
I am listening for shalom.

The quote at the top of the post is from Martin Luther.
