But, Harrill says, they will not abide grass — unless they're really hungry. Goats love to snack on raspberry canes, and a berry farmer generally will have those in spades. But, because the type of raspberries Imladris Farms grows for their jams are susceptible to disease, it's best to cut the canes down and dispose of them at the end of every season, typically by burning.
If I cut those plants down and burn them, I've returned every bit of that carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere. As a green solution, Harrill enlists the help of the goats, letting them take over the berry patch after all of the raspberries are done, eat the canes down and deposit their manure into the patch for the next generation of raspberries. That raspberry-cane-fed meat ends up getting sold at the farmers market to a clientele that's more soccer mom than foodie, Harrill says.
But goat is not like that at all. If the market keeps going the way it is, Harrill's little cloven-hoofed stock may end up putting money in the bank — and meat on the table. They're looking for something that's unique, that's different, that's good.
Just being unique and different doesn't cut it — they've still got to enjoy the experience. Chai Pani is located at 22 Battery Park Ave. The Blackbird is located at 10 E.

But surely we can trust the Book of Acts to give a generally accurate picture of Paul, his adventures, and his teachings. Or can we? Rather, this figure represents a very early stage in the re-envisioning of Paul, by what would eventually become the Christian church but was at the time an offbeat version of Judaism.
That leaves us with the epistles. Still others are disputed.

Which has nothing to do with the order in which Paul wrote them. I came away with an indelible picture of Paul as introspective and psychologically aware, wrestling to the best of his ability with the knowledge of his drivenness and the illusory nature of his free will. Harrill is a historian.
A world where the Jews were a significant presence, probably not aggressively missionizing their neighbors but exerting enough quiet attraction to worry pagan moralists.
A world dominated by Roman power, and by Roman conceptions of what it means to be powerful. He traces the psychological reading of Paul, which seemed to me so natural and self-evident, back to Saint Augustine in the late fourth century.
Augustine used autobiography to convey his encounter with Paul. So, more than a thousand years later, did the Augustinian monk Martin Luther:. I saw many who tried with great effort and the best of intentions to do everything possible to appease their conscience. They wore hair shirts; they fasted; they prayed; they tormented and wore out their bodies with various exercises so severely that if they had been made of iron, they would have been crushed.
And yet the more they labored, the greater their terrors became. This too is part of the Pauline legacy via Augustine and Luther, stripped of its religious terrors but still recognizable. The bona fide Paul? Harrill might well ask: if what I saw in the Epistle to the Romans nearly 50 years ago was self-evidently the Pauline crux, to which everything else Paul did and said could be traced, how come nobody before Augustine seemed to notice it?

Why did it gain no traction until Luther and the Protestant Reformation? I grew up in a culture unconsciously saturated with Augustine, with Luther, with Freud who extended their trajectory. Its world-view was axiomatic for me before I even opened the New Testament. We never know.

But illusions sometimes do give that impression. The very act of examining the evidence, as in the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, changes the figure into multiple Pauls and meanings.
