Stalk the Gaps

91-FlRHyXCL._SL1500_

“Go up into the gaps. If you can find them; they shift and vanish too. Stalk the gaps. Squeak into a gap in the soil, turn and unlock–more than a maple–a universe. This is how you spend this afternoon, and tomorrow morning, and tomorrow afternoon. Spend the afternoon. You can’t take it with you.

–Annie Dillard, from Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
