masquerade

The texture of the world, its filigree and scrollwork, means that there is the possibility for beauty here, a beauty inexhaustible in its complexity, which opens to my knock, which answers in me a call I do not remember calling, and which trains me to the the wild and extravagant nature of the spirit I seek. 

–Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
