Bacon From Acorns is now LifeCraft.

The bells of this campanile (bell tower) heralded Easter joy to a rural mountain community in Tuscany, as they have for hundreds of years.

This Easter may we discover a joy that is more than a passing experience; a joy that endures not just as a backdrop but as the encompassing context of life; a joy that while it does not banish suffering imbues it with meaning and even life-giving power; a joy that unites us and transforms all the travails and worries of daily life.

Happy Easter.
