Happy Birthday Annie Dillard!


"No; we have been as usual asking the wrong question. It does not matter a hoot what the mockingbird on the chimney is singing. The real and proper question is: Why is it beautiful?"

--Annie Dillard, Pulitzer Prize winning American author... and today is her BIRTHDAY!!!

Isn't nature beautiful. Looking forward to "The Conference of the Birds" on Sunday. Showtime is at 2:30 at Key City.

Hi Roberta,

Thanks for this.

I LOVE Annie Dillard and have read much of her work. (Have you ever read The Writing Life? You would love it.)
