The Michaud Barn

January 23, 2010

"Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets, but humbler folk may circumvent this restriction if they know how. To plant a pine, for example, one need be neither god nor poet; one need only own a good shovel.

"By virtue of this curious loophole in the rules, any clodhopper may say: Let there be a tree and there will be one. If his back be strong and his shovel sharp, there may eventually be ten thousand.

"And in the seventh year he may lean upon his shovel, and look upon his trees, and find them good..."

-- Aldo Leopold, "A Sand County Almanac," 1948
