from Pilgrim At Tinker Creek
“Not only does something come if you wait, but it pours over you like a waterfall, like a tidal wave. You wait in all naturalness without expectation or hope, emptied, translucent, and that which comes rocks and topples you; it will shear, loose, launch, winnow, grind.”
Anna Maria Johnson’s annotations on a page of Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Read the beautiful essay at Numero Cinq.
