"The blue mountains walk to the kitchen and back to the
shop, to the desk, to the stove. We sit on the park bench and
let the wind and rain drench us. The blue mountains walk
out to put another coin in the parking meter, and go on down
to the 7-Eleven . . . 'Such mountains and waters of themselves
become wise persons and sages' – become sidewalk vendors
and noodlecooks, become marmots, ravens, graylings, carp,
rattlesnakes, mosquitoes. All beings are 'said' by the
mountains and waters – even the clanking tread of a Caterpillar
tractor, the gleam of the keys of a clarinet."
