The quote from Annie Dillard writer of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, published in 1974. She was honored with a Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction the following year. I read this today on The Writer's Almanac just as I was about to get on my bike and go to a mountain cafe about 5k from where I live. I love the view. I find it inspiring. Am curious to know where other artists choose to work and if the venue changes depending on the work.
