#BlogFlash2012: Day Twenty Six- Seeing

“It is dire poverty indeed when a man is so malnourished and fatigued that he won’t stoop to pick up a penny. But if you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days. It is that simple. What you see is what you get.”

– Annie Dillard, “Seeing,” From Pilgrim at Tinker Creek


Annie Dillard‘s gorgeous essay “Seeing” is among my favorites, linguistically, structurally, and aesthetically. Enjoy!
