The silence is all there is. It is the alpha and the omega. It is God’s brooding over the face of the waters; it is the blended note of ten thousand things, the whine of wings. You take a step in the right direction to pray to this silence, and even address the prayer to “World.” Distinctions blur. Quit your tents. Pray without ceasing.
- Annie Dillard, Teaching A Stone to Talk
