between human beings

Harlan disliked handling money because of its abstractness and impersonality; for he did not enjoy either paying it or receiving it in payment. He felt a social embarrassment in monetary transactions that country people still feel, as if money is simply too crude a means of exchange between human beings.

~ Wendell Berry
from Harlan Hubbard: Life and Work

so many things become clean or clarified at this point in my life, things like this that have always been a truth for me. why is it so at 42 that i begin to see? why is it so? and why not before? (but we are always beginning to see.) and what is next?

i kiss this mysterious life and move into this next phase...
