Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting, over and over announcing your place in the family of things.
Mary Oliver “Wild Geese”
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you ; knock, and it shall be opened to you.
Jesus, Matthew 7:7
Memory is the enemy of wonder, which abides nowhere else but in the present. This is why, unless you are a child, wonder depends on forgetting—on a process, that is, of subtraction [of unlearning].
Michael Pollan, The Botany of Desire
