2 for U

2 people I know recently sent me e-mails. They both had tags at the bottom of their e-mails.

The other said

" ...the thought has come to me that the old world in which our people
lived by the work of their hands, close to weather and earth, plants
and animals, was the true world; and that the new world of cheap
energy and even cheaper money, honored greed, and dreams of liberation
from every restraint, is mostly theatre. this new world seems a jumble
of scenery and props never quite believable, an economy of fantasies
and moods, in which it is hard to remember either the timely world of
nature or the eternal world of the prophets and poets. and i fear, i
believe i know, that the doom of the older world i knew as a boy will
finally afflict the new one that replaced it."
