QuotationHot. Yesterday, the dip in the path to the woods beyond the sheep barn was like an oven. The breeze like the breath of a furnace. Cooler in the woods where I read [Jakob] Boehme's Confessions and a bit of Miller's Wisdom of the Heart (a fine book). The Confessions are the only book of Boehme so far I have been able to understand.
