"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Happy birthday, Harrison.

Jim Harrison was born on this date in 1937.

In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
and mountains of the Mexican border
I’ve followed the calls of birds

that don’t exist into thickets
and up canyons. I’m unsure
if all of me returned.

- Jim Harrison
