My Hero

Every morning, I receive the Writer's Almanac email. This morning's edition included a poem from my hero, Wendell Berry. His poem, "How To Be A Poet," is read by Garrison Keillor.

I am not following my hero's advice. I am not shunning the electric wire. I am not staying away from screens.

And when I get compliments from readers of this blog, I do not doubt your judgment.

Also, in case you are a Berry fan, or just want to read a good book or two, check these new books he is coming out with at
