Sacred Places

There’s a line in a poem by Wendell Berry that says, “There are no sacred places; there are only sacred places and desacred places.”

It got me thinking of what might show up on my lists:

Sacred places for me begin with:

  • Mountains & forests
  • Rivers & streams
  • Dojo’s & Monasteries
  • The beach
  • Anywhere my children and grandchildren are
  • Places of solitude
  • Music

Desacred places for me begin with:

  • Toxic waste dumps
  • KKK and militia meetings
  • Political debate stages
  • Strip mine areas
  • Military weapons arsenals
  • Drones
  • These days, the US Senate and House of Representatives
  • Weapons and bombs

What are your sacred and desacred places?
