Walter Brookfield Hendrickson wrote a comprehensive biography entitled David Dale Owen: Pioneer Geologist of the Middle West, which was published in 1943, only a few years after my initial visit. My geologist husband’s grandfather Richard Owen, David Dale’s youn­gest brother, was also a prominent geologist. Notes 2. Julie Dash, Daughters of the Dust: The Making of an African American Woman’s Film (New York: New Press, 1992), 94–95 (screenplay 20–21). 3. He arrived in New Harmony on “The Boatload of Knowledge.” 4. In Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening (New York: Cowley Publications, 2004), 86, Cynthia Bourgeault draws a parallel between St. Paul’s great hymn and these lines of Rumi, which are from Mathnawi, VI: 1967–70, quoted from Kabir Edmund Helminski, Living Presence: A Sufi Way to Mindfulness & the Essential Self (New York: Tarcher/Putnam, 1992), 142. 5. There ­were concerns that the New Harmony Memorial Commission wanted to condemn “the property” and declare eminent domain. But this historic building was primarily a longtime Owen home. 6. Richard Wilson’s story of the Wabash quotes La Salle’s letter to Louis XIV in which he describes the great river to the north, which the Indians called “Ouabache.” 7. A group of women, who had been studying the works of the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung under Ruth Thacker Fry, founded the C. G. Jung Educational Center of Houston, Texas, in 1958. Jung graciously consented to the use of his name for the center. 2. Indian Mound 1. The river was in the pro­cess of change during Harmonist times. A man called Pennypacker ran a gristmill at the Old Dam and ­hand-­ploughed a ditch upon the site for the water to flow into the Wabash. The ditch widened and deepened until it separated that part of our mainland, which is now called Cut-Off Island. 2. Bromfield’s Malabar Farm became an Ohio state park and National Historic Landmark. He is remembered as a Pulitzer Prize-­winning author and conservationist. 3. I recently discovered a relevant passage concerning Tillich’s Theology of Culture (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1959) in Vincent J. Donovan’s Christianity Rediscovered (New York: Orbus Books, 2003), 34, that provided me with a fresh insight into Abraham: “Paul Tillich points out that only if God is exclusively God, unconditioned and unlimited by anything other than himself, is there a true mono­the­ism, and only then is the power over space and time broken. ​. ​. ​. Abraham’s call was the turning point. It was the beginning of the end for polytheism. God must be separated from his nation to become the High God.” 4...
