Today’s my birthday! I’m older than I thought. I was pretty sure I was still in my 20s; but what’s time? Ha.
From Marilynn Robinson’s “Gilead”:
I don’t wish to suggest a reality that is simply an enlarged or extrapolated version of this reality. If you think how a thing we call a stone differs from a thing we call a dream– the degrees of unlikeness within the reality we know are very extreme, and what I wish to suggest is a much more absolute unlikeness, with which we exist, though our human circumstance creates in us a radically limited and peculiar notion of what existence is.”
