Laid upon the Landscape: September 24, 2015

View from Talland House, across escallonia hedges (2002)
[S]omehow or another, the windows being open, and the book held so that it rested on a background of escallonia hedges and distant blue, instead of being a book it seemed as if what I read was laid upon the landscape not printed, bound, or sewn up, but somehow the product of trees and fields and the hot summer sky, like the air which swam, on fine mornings, round the outlines of things.

"Reading"  ca. 1919
E3 (142)
