I realized I never read Dillard's transcendentalist theodicy all the way through (despite calling it one of my favorites), and that I needed a dose of nature writing since moving to New York. What I learned this time was how right I was in loving my goldfish, how susceptible I am to the poet's side of agnosticism, and -- even though there's got to be more of a complex ecosystem in this city than just "acres of rats" -- how I still need to somehow make enough money to get to the country with some free time on my hands.

A year in the life of Annie Dillard's wanderings and wonderings on the shores of Tinker Creek in the Roanoke Valley. Not all beauty and wonder, nature is very much alive and bleeding, sometimes dead and bloody, cyclic and fleeting: what Dillard describes as a "now you see it now you don't" affair. Rest assured she preserves the seeing for us all... better than the real thing?
