“I take it as a given we can’t escape the way the world grinds the living into debris.

But before it does, there’s a chance for the lucky encounter with someone or something

—a painting or poem, a place—that can beckon to what lies broken and hungry inside us all.

I believe it’s what most of us long for.”

Barbara Hurd, Orion Magazine, May/June 2008
