“Nature,” said Thoreau in his journal, “is mythical and mystical always, and spends her whole genius on the least work.” The creator, I would add, churns out the intricate texture of least works that is the world with a spendthrift genius and an extravagance of care. This is the point.”
-Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
Living on the edge of a city creates an interesting dichotomy. Sprawling suburbia gives way to cow pastures and farms. It’s not uncommon to find places like this down a random road you decide to explore on a Saturday morning.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
