Blog Watch: Reflections around a Quotable Wendell Berry

When I sat down this morning to write my first post for this blog, I meant to focus on eating bugs — who eats bugs, why don’t we eat more bugs, why does it gross us out… recipes? I don’t know. But instead, this came out:

“There’s a type of cruelty that is inescapable; every person lives at the expense of another creature. We are not going to live to be innocent in our use of the world.”

This was an off-the-cuff quote from writer and environmental activist Wendell Berry who spoke in Floyd, VA, during Biological Woodsmen Week in late November.
