Sheep and Books and the Poetry of
Garrison Keillor

In today’s Baltimore Sun, the wonderful Garrison Keillor wrestles with the “struggle for inner tranquility amid unread books:”
It is God that has made us and not we ourselves, we are his people and the sheep of his pasture, and George W. Bush is no longer the top sheep. Altogether a cause for rejoicing as we forge ahead in the struggle to achieve inner tranquility, which for me the other morning included misplaced glasses, a madcap dash to the airport, and en route in the taxi a call from my wife saying, “You forgot your billfold.” One more sheep with a thorn in his hoof.
The books come into play later in the piece, but it’s poetry, any way you slice it. The full piece is here.

He is a wizard. He has the knack to make the mundane a twist of fate with humor. Long live.
