From the Town By a Spring
What follows are a few small flights all written over the course of recent times of isolation. Writing these has helped me understand anew that, under panic and threat and rush and its ensuant exhaustions, the open-heartedness needed for “the real work” is hard to maintain, but it is exactly what needs maintaining. Take heart. We are well surrounded with good examples and meticulous scholarship and beautiful articulations. This is a message as much to myself as anyone.
