"At the time of Lewis and Clark, setting the prairies on fire was a well-known signal that meant, 'Come down to the water.' It was an extravagant gesture, but we can't do less. If the landscape reveals one certainty, it is that the extravagant gesture is the very stuff of creation. After the one extravagant gesture of creation in the first place, the universe has continued to deal exclusively in extravagances, flinging intricacies and colossi down aeons of emptiness, heaping profusions on profligacies with ever-fresh vigor. The whole show has been on fire from the word go. I come down to the water to cool my eyes. But everywhere I look I see fire; that which isn't flint is tinder, and the whole world sparks and flames."
--Annie Dillard, _Pilgrim at Tinker Creek_

The shadow of the curl over your right eye makes me king this. So great. And the caption kind of matches your expression as well.

Read Pilgrim at Tinker Creek in High School at Lovett. At the time didn't enjoy it much. As i got older and became a writer i came to appreciate her work and to my surprise read another of her books.

Scrivener says:
@Poe: Good question. I've been dealing with medical stuff, work's been really crazy, and I've generally just been so worn out that I tend to fall asleep reading bedtime stories to the kids and don't manage to get up and take photos. I'm trying to get back into the rhythm...

Scrivener says:
@hale Missing you, as well. This week, both the kids have been sick, I've been sick, work has been completely crazy. But really, I have no good excuse for missing so much of Whickerino. I should be better.
