Letters from Proxima Thule

When I took a workshop with Li-Young Lee a few years back, he spent a lot of time talking about the Sublime. His word was "whoa"--if in one hand you held the world's most perfect rose while your other hand pointed on the other side to a steep, vast chasm, you could look at either and, with only slightly differing inflection, say "whoa." Also think of Rilke: "every angel is terrifying...." Awesome, indeed.
