A Block Off the Ol’ Chip

These are the good ol’ days. We, the middle class, are unbelievably rich. We’re all self-deluded but in different ways, mine is no better than yours. We shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously, and we need to be dead serious about the ways we live simply so that others can simply live. We need to acknowledge that that last phrase makes a better bumper sticker than it does a credo we actually live by. To our shame. We need always take a long, hard look at language; it can take us captive, even if it is GREEN.

Those are some of the things you’ll read at People’s Green, which I apologize to just now be putting on my blog roll.

These are the things you’ll read that just maybe will sound a bit like what you read at Fragments or Nameless Creek, and what you’ll read in What We Hold In Our Hands: a Slow Road Reader.

There’s a reason for that. People’s Green author is this people’s son.

Nate’s early writing inspired me. I’m following in his footsteps. So please stop by People’s Green and say hello. And tell him the Old Man sent ya.
