Mere Apparition

October 23, 2009

“I feel sometimes as if I were a child who opens its eyes on the world once and sees amazing things it will never know any names for and then has to close its eyes again. I know this is all mere apparition compared to what awaits us, but it is only lovelier for that.”

—Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

    I saw those fuzzy things by the side of the road yesterday and thought they’d be fun to shoot. :o) Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow…today was too wet and gray.

    Love the quote!
