A patch of shade

I am convinced that all most of us truly desire is a patch of shade near a grassy field in which to love our family, eat with friends, warm ourselves at the fire and sing into the night.

That a good man can (and will) do good work and not fulfill this heart’s desire, is a shame and a crime. Are not sky and ground in abundance? And God made trees to grow with seed and water, and nothing else. What have we done? Where did we go astray? As the song goes, why do we work so hard, for things we do not want?
