What’s in the Ground?

The ground holds stories, some seen, some concealed. Within one handful of soil are millions of microbes, the stuff of life, compressed over time, moving from dying to something new.

“What’s in the ground?” is one question to help get at the matter of things. What here wants to be seen? What story needs to be told? What truth is waiting? This week’s reader tackles stories of the earth, and the way stories have been hidden in it. Those stories call for action, for the growth of something new that might take that which has been buried and bring up from it a reckoning, a confrontation, a healing.
