MacFarlane, Robert “The Old Ways” (Viking 2012)

As the pen rises from the page between the words, so the walker’s feet rise and fall between paces, and as the deer continues to run as it bounds from the earth, and the dolphin continues to swim even as it leans again and again from the sea, so writing and wayfaring are continuous activities, a running stitch, a persistence of the same seam or stream (105).
