Blog Watch: WB cited in Speech to Oklahoma Food Co-op

WELCOME to this 7th Annual Meeting of the Oklahoma Food Cooperative.
So how's the food?  Some of this is the speech I had intended to give last year, which plans were somewhat derailed by a little problem caused by decades of eating a conventional diet out of grocery stores. I stayed up late last night reading Wendell Berry poetry, to find just the right words to begin my welcome speech. And I found them.
The Apple Tree
by Wendell Berry
In the essential prose
of things, the apple tree
stands up, emphatic
among the accidents
of the afternoon, solvent,
not to be denied.
