Live Seasons quote

These are our live seasons. Let us live them as purely as we can, in the present. ~Annie Dillard from Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

The quote above is taken from what I hold to be one of the best pieces of writing I’ve ever read. Annie Dillard’s way of seeing and noticing the beauty in the natural world strikes a deep cord with me. Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is the chronicle of her year living alone in the woods. The book is her observations of the natural world, together with thoughts on philosophy, spirituality, science, ecology, woven together into an intricate tapestry that changed the way I see and notice things around me. If you haven’t read it, or anything by Annie Dillard, well, you probably should.
