Harvest is the time to reap what we’ve sewn, and to stow our goods for the difficult days ahead. It’s the time to decide what merits entry into our sod huts, and what is left to the elements. Often this is based on a degree of conformity to norms, on a willingness to fit in, and to play along. We decide what’s suitable to sustain us, cede diversity to the predictable, and leave the rest to wither on the vine.
We call this insularity and reliance on the proven “Minnesota nice;” the harsh reality to a veneer of kindness of a people tempered by extremes. Next week’s theme of “fringe” will celebrate the outliers, the peripheral, and the eccentric.
