Being filled by each moment

You don’t run down the present, pursue it with baited hooks and nets.

You wait for it, empty-handed, and you are filled.

You’ll have fish left over…

It is by definition, Christmas, the incarnation.

This old rock planet gets the present for a present on its birthday every day.

Annie Dillard,  Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
