      Damn! Yes!

      I need to cut back on reading about tech and focus more of my time on stuff like this — my personal jam: the convergence of literature and nature, art and beauty. Meaning. Purpose. Life.

      This is a great read for someone who knows nothing about Snyder. And it was still rewarding to me although I have already read (and read about) him quite extensively.

      If you’re a real dork, do what I did: read the poetry out loud. “Control Burn” sounds so beautiful. When the words float from throat to air, they feel even more like what they really are: prayer.
