    Thanks again to our community for making this a wonderful event of joining each of us together as an actual community. I feel energized and inspired to carry on and look forward to more joining in time. Thanks again for Doug Thompson capturing and sharing this with the larger community.

    I couldn’t make the talk, Doug – any chance you could post his whole talk on YouTube?

      I filmed the entire event at the high school but the final outcome of much of that is up to the folks who brought me in to do it.

    I wish I had known this was taking place. I would not have missed it. I have long enjoyed his writings.

    Was Wendell Berry’s whole talk videoed? If so, is it available for viewing anywhere?

    • Doug Thompson November 25, 2013 at 8:00 am

      It was streamed over the Internet and I filmed the entire event at the high school. Not sure yet what the final product will be. That depends on the folks who brought me into the project.

    hope renewed.

    I’m sad that I didn’t know this was happening. We would have come, we read pieces from Wendell Berry at our wedding instead of the standard Bible passages.

    Yes, yes, let’s have Doug’s capture put together and offer them to sell (as a DVD), to pay for his time and any left over go to HHFF. Can you produce them and we send customers your way Doug? I’d love to see a final product. I have no news on the schools recording yet. Doug you do a great job. Let’s talk about it further please!

    Thank you, Doug. I really enjoyed seeing this video of Mr. Berry as I, too, was unable to attend. What a sweet, humble man.
