A Beauty Inexhaustible

"The texture of the world, its filigree and scrollwork, means that there is the possibility for beauty here, a beauty inexhaustible in its complexity, which opens to my knock, which answers in me a call I do not remember calling, and which trains me to the wild and extravagant nature of the spirit I seek." Annie Dillard, from 'Pilgrim at Tinker Creek'

  1. Did you ever think that seven years from this posting, these words you shared would strike a heart halfway 'round the world - a heart searching for something to capture the feeling I had at viewing photos of owls that a friend banded in Virginia. Thank you.
