The house at Payne Hollow (Harlan Hubbard woodcut)
To arise in the frosty morning at the point of daybreak, climb the
hill and cut wood, while the sky lightens above the soaring trees;
to eat this wholesome, sweet food, to use my body, hands and
mind at the endless work I have to do; to read by the firelight,
to sleep warm and snug; all this shared and enjoyed by my
loving partner -- what manner of man originated this
idea of a happier life beyond death?
