Waiting… still

You don’t run down the present, pursue it with baited hooks and nets.
You wait for it, empty-handed, and you are filled.

Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Spending days…

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

Quote: Annie Dillard

Good Days


There is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by. A life of good days lived in the senses is not enough. The life of sensation is the life of greed; it requires more and more. The life of the spirit requires less and less; time is ample and its passage sweet.
