Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

As the pen rises from the page between words, so the walker's feet rise and fall between paces, and as the deer continues to run as it bounds from the earth and the dolphin continues to swim even as it leaps again and again from the sea, so writing and wayfaring are continuous activities, a running stitch, a persistence of the same seam or stream.
Robert Macfarlane, The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot

I like Robert MacFarlane's books, I'm waiting for his latest to come out as a soft back. Meantime I must finish Meadowland by John Lewis-Stemple.

There are so any jeweled word passages that I have forgotten but that are beautiful paintings in and off themselves.
