Shiver in the light

“It would be an almost perfect love affair, wouldn’t it? that between the pilgrim and the road.  No mistake, it is a beautiful thing, the camino.  It stretches away from you.  It leads to real gold: Look at the way it shines.  And it asks only one thing.  Which happens to be the one thing you long to give.  You step forward.  You shiver in the light.  Nothing is left in you but desire for that perfect economy of action, using up the whole heart, no residue, no mistake: camino.” — Anne Carson, Plainwater

  1. Ooh, I was hoping this part of the book might speak to you. I’m not much for giving recommendations but looks like I got one right. 😀
