Reflections: Antlers in the Treetop

Moose is a guy I know from the blog, Ragged Thots. Although I’ve never had any indication that Moose visits this site, when I came across the following thought in Richard Ford’s excellent novel, The Sportswriter, I thought of Moose and decided to post it here:

Mystery is the attractive condition a thing (an object, an action, a person) possesses which you know a little about but don’t know about completely. It is the twiney promise of unknown things (effects, interworkings, suspicions) which you must be wise enough to explore not too, deeply, for fear you will dead-end in nothing but facts.

Perhaps Moose will somehow find his way here and read it. Perhaps not.
