Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

Land O'Goshen
This is Celeste, reporting from near Bristol, Ind. Life is about the same as ever in and around Goshen: the farmer's market and Rachel's Bread are still the place to be on Saturdays, the college still has maple trees and churches full of Mennonites still sing with an ethereal beauty.

This Goshen alumna is especially glad -- if not somewhat smug -- to not be returning to school for the first summer in 20 years.

In other news, I spent Saturday night and tonight hanging out with a Marine who recently returned from Iraq, one of his missions being the invasion of Fallujah. His parents are friends with David and Karen. So, I got to hear some war stories: about Iraqi liquor that smells like anti-freeze, searching Iraqi houses early in the morning, missing beer, and how Marines always get what they want. It was mind-opening to meet a 22-year-old, as I am, who spent his past four years in the military -- with two years in Iraq -- rather than reading books, discussing books and sitting around a lot in northern Indiana, as some of us have.

I'll sign off with these words of wisdom: Meg, I think "Se la vi" would be more accurately be translated from the Spanish as "I saw her/a feminine object."
