Have you picked up on the fact that I’m growing to be increasingly fascinated with Flannery O’Connor?
No? Oh, well…let me help you. Also, I can’t help but wonder if O’Connor was meditating on the Parable of the Talents as she penned these words:
“The fact is that anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days. If you can’t make something out of a little experience, you probably won’t be able to make it out of a lot. The writer’s business is to contemplate experience, not be merged in it.”
-Flannery O’Connor; The Nature & Aim of Fiction
