even more things

Selection from Thing of Wonder, 2018.

Inflected as awe, cadenced as bewitchment, transfigured as the sublime—the act of wonder invites a detachment from ordinary logic. Inspiring a breach in the membrane of awareness, wonder emerges as a sudden opening in a system of established and expected meanings. To wonder is to suspend all trust in one’s own logics—be they science, philosophy, custom, or opinion—and become subsumed entirely in the uniqueness of a thing’s native logic. To wonder is to respect things, as things in themselves.
