Andre Dubus III

Mark E. Hyman
Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception.
How many colours are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of 'green'? How many rainbows can light create for the untutored eye?
No man's brain is so dull, and no man's eye so blind, that they cannot catch food for dreams.
Donald G. Mitchell

Deborah Ann Woll
