Infinite capacity for love in the smallest detail; infinite suffering in the innermost reality; large mind in even the dumbest, mutest object; destiny in an object that stands still; heart in the middle of the gray, motionless water; the largest sadness in the world in a groaning buoy; in a buoy and the bird overhead, huge sadness, and yet I hop from place to place as though I’m weightless. —Dan Chiasson, from “Where’s the Moon, There’s the Moon (A Story for Children)”Art Credit Eugenia Loli

Infinite capacity for love in the smallest detail; 
infinite suffering in the innermost reality; 
large mind in even the dumbest, mutest object; 
destiny in an object that stands still; 
heart in the middle of the gray, motionless water; 
the largest sadness in the world in a groaning buoy; 
in a buoy and the bird overhead, huge sadness, 
and yet I hop from place to place as though I’m weightless.
