"Often I have the sensation of waking up, deep in the middle of the woods. Miles of hills, winding trails, and suddenly, wonder—the laced shadow of a cobweb on a tree, so precise I hold my breath, a tiny green caterpillar making its way across a wide and sturdy leaf, a whisper of November frost so fine I pray the world be always this quiet."
