TNP82- The Eclipse The Gleaners And Ruben And I

34 minutes

This is a gentle little episode. It's just a recording of me and my husband, Ruben, musing about appropriate rituals for the upcoming solar eclipse. The conversation meanders to ecological costs, the workers and the strangers, capitalism, extinction, co-parenting, the meaning of "shadow work", fine art in Paris, and how gleaning points to a way of living together that we each really value.

In the end, we do sort of come up with some ritual observances to mark the eclipse.

Things we mention:

John O'Donohue's Grace Before Meals

Daniel Quinn's essay, "The New Renaissance"

Kelly Diels' essay, There Is No Flawless Position (newsletter, August 20, 2017)

Agnès Vargas' film, "The Gleaners and I"

Jean-Francois Millet's painting of The Gleaners and also The Angelus (originally titled, Prayer For The Potato Crop)
