Questions and answers with Jeff
Q: Isn’t that song kind of unpatriotic?
A: “There is no government so worthy as your son who fishes with you in silence beside the forest pool. There is no national glory so comely as your daughter whose hands have learned a music and go their own way on the keys. There is no national glory so comely as my daughter who dances and sings and is the brightness of my house. There is no government so worthy as my son who laughs, as he comes up the path from the river in the evening, for joy.” So says Wendell Berry, so says Bob Dylan.
