Thinking of Edward Abbey On This Christmas Morning   Leave a comment

CHRISTMAS PAST #11 — It must be something about this time of year, but again I find myself thinking of Edward Abbey. So, rather than doing a new post I share one from a few years back and Tom Russell is a master at channeling Abbey. — kenne

“If a man can’t piss in his own front yard, he’s livin’ too close to town.”

— Edward Abbey, re Tom Russell

“Ed died one day at sundown, in his Tucson writing shack
They wrapped him in a sleeping bag, and drove him way out back
Beneath the wild Saguaro, the coyotes chewed Ed’s bones
And on the hidden marker, was “No comment” carved in.”

— from “The Ballad of Edward Abbey” by Tom Russell

Benediction: Edward Abbey, by Tom Russell

Be loyal to what you love, be true to the earth, fight your enemies with passion and laughter. ~Edward Abbey
