This book is full of keen observations of nature. Annie Dillard is brilliant and has created a book of wonder and depth.

When I first began to read this book, it didn't engage me. I didn't engage with it. So I put it down, thinking "too rich, too dense." A few months later, I picked the book up again, began to read it casually, and then couldn't stop. Images and passages from this book continue to inform my life twenty years later. It's been a gift.

So a few weeks ago, I picked it up again, thinking to renew the experience. But it didn't engage me. I didn't engage with it. I'm waiting now....
