To Toil And To Till

Pen & Ink Fine Art By Doug Ashby
To toil and till once was all.
To toil and till once was considered undignified.
How was it possible that we were so wrong.

Impressed with our perceived dominion we set about to save.
And save we did but at great loss.

Now some are beginning realize that to toil and till is worth our deference.

Now some are beginning to understand that we wish to not be adrift when it comes to toil and tillage, and we understand that what once was all needs to be acknowledged.

And celebrated.

For to toil and to till is worth the energy and redress of all.

A stippled pen and ink drawing of an eggplant. I know it might not look exactly like that, but that was the inspiration. I will always return to food as subject as it is an important source of creativity for me, as well as nourishment.
