Dillard Quotation

And now for the quote that has stayed with me for months...

"I am puffed clay, blown up and set down. That I fall like Adam is not surprising: I plunge, waft, arc, pour, and dive. The surprise is how good the wind feels on my face as I fall. And the other surprise is that I ever rise at all. I rise when I receive, like grass."

*Annie Dillard* (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek)
