Quote from Marilynne Robinson’s book of essays: Death of Adam

img_2927

   In her essay entitled Psalm Eight, Marilynne Robinson writes, “I have spent my life watching, not to see beyond the world, merely to see, great mystery, what is plainly before my eyes. I think the concept of transcendence is based on a misreading of creation. With all respect to heaven, the scene of the miracle is here, among us. The eternal as an idea is much less preposterous than time, and this very fact should seize our attention.”

  2. I have to say that I appreciate the photo more than the quote. What a beautiful garden!

  3. Excellent. Agree wholeheartedly. And the picture is wonderful.

  4. What a beautiful photo. It certainly makes me long for warmer weather!

  5. The quote causes one to pause and reflect. The picture, in the middle of January in Nebraska offers hope for the future.
