braiding sweetgrass

one of my favorite recent books is braiding sweetgrass by robin wall kimmerer, about trying to rediscover a connection between humans and the earth that undoes some of the insanity of western post-industrial culture. here is the author on late fall: “that september pairing of purple and gold is lived reciprocity; its wisdom is that the beauty of one is illuminated by the radiance of the other. science and art, matter and spirit, indigenous knowledge and western science–can they be goldenrod and asters for each other?”
