“Wherever the mind dwells apart is itself a distant place.”
David Hinton, Classical Chinese Poetry: An Anthology

“Dharma companions filling mountains, a sangha forms of itself: chanting, sitting ch’an stillness. Looking out from distant city walls, people see only white clouds.”
David Hinton, Mountain Home: The Wilderness Poetry of Ancient China

“Thoreau made two attempts to climb Mt Ktaadn in Maine and failed because the mountain was smothered in wind-blown clouds, though it almost seems he found the raw wildness of the place as daunting and impassable as the billowing cloud-cover. It was on the descent that Thoreau’s experience of existential CONTACT occurred: a moment where all the explanations and assumptions fell away…his failure left him open to absorb unexpected implications of his disorienting experience on the mountain…his reason became “dispersed and shadowy, more thin and subtil, like the air” as he faced “vast, Titanic, inhuman Nature…”
David Hinton, The Wilds of Poetry: Adventures in Mind and Landscape
