Recently, I took up weaving rugs and chair pads out of old clothing that my family had worn out or outgrown. It was surprising, when I really stepped back, to recognize how much we had but weren’t using. We’re surrounded by advertising that promises more, more quickly, and cheaper. Why painstakingly disassemble old clothing and reassemble it into something new when instead you could just go to a store, pull out a credit card, and get exactly what you need in a fraction of the time?
A few weeks ago, I spent the morning at a friend’s farm. We walked the fields, watching the day take shape. And, like we usually do when we get together, we talked.
This time, we were talking about something so basic that it’s hard to put into words. Somehow, in our meandering conversation, we started talking about what is real.
