Gabriel Lawrence says that the poem "The Peace of Wild Things" was written by William Blake. It was actually written by Wendell Berry. (It is possible that this is a subtle indication of his failing memory.) See more »


Dr. Gabe Lawrence: When despair for the world grows in me, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great herring feeds. I come into the peace of wild things, who do not tax there lives with fore thought of grief. I come into the presence of still water and feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with there light. and for a time I rest in the peace of the world and I'm free.

The Peace of Wild Things (#6.6)
4 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I hate Carol, always getting into other people's businesses and valuing fetuses over living humans. Hope she miscarries, that would be so awesome, especially if it will be done by that girl she got into jail smashing her on her big ugly pregnant stomach with a baseball bat.

So Jeanie is out. What a disappointing way to write her out. A woman throwing away her career without thinking twice because 'she always misses her family'. Ugh. I bet Peter won't throw away medicine for his son no matter how much he loves him. And she was even selfish not to notify anyone, but we have to understand, women with babies lose brain power to think about others, right.

The one good story was that about Weaver confronting Gabe about Alzheimer's. It is a terrifying disease and her struggle about it as well as his was very well portrayed.

Romano with his sperm bank bragging was also great. i keep on liking that evil character more and more.
