Frustration and Sorrow

Follow My Film The Script Frustration and Sorrow Christopher J Boghosian

Recently, I was introduced to Mr. Berry’s poem in an opportune email.

It immediately thrust me face-to-face with the main character of my script.  My heart ached as I stood before her, for I yearned that she go among the trees and be still.  I dreamt of listening to her sing her song.

Eager to draw nearer to my main character, I scribbled the poem over and over, reciting its verses, absorbing its meaning.  And as I intimately connected with her, I grew frustrated by what I found.  There is no hint of a song.  There is no hope for a miraculous transformation.  Rather, I encountered a woman who cannot live for a while with her fear.  A woman unwilling to be mute in her consternations.

My frustration soon turned to sorrow, so I turned to pen and paper for relief.

    Hey Jennifer,

    Yes, I did know that. During my research for this post, I learned about Mr. Berry and was blown away by his views, which were way ahead of the times. It’s incredible how prophetic he was…

    Hi Chris!

    I have never read this Wendell Berry poem and it is great. Thanks! I am excited to follow your journey as closely as I can.

    Did you know Wendell Berry (aside from being a Christian) is a huge advocate for good farming?
