Finished reading: Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard 📚

Nuggets of brilliance floating in a slurry of overwrought prose that at times made it a slog to read. Still, remarkable. Any similarity to Walden is superficial, so check it out even if you, like me, abhor Waldenponding.

@miljko Thanks for sharing this review + link to the Waldenponding article.. I spent 2 hours last night on a deep dive in Rao's writing.

@Annie Ah yes, I've went down that rabbit hole more than a few times. You've probably come across them, but these are a few that got me thinking the most (Waldenponding is also there): - The Gervais Principle, which should have been a book (and is much better than his only actual book) - The Premium Mediocre Life of Maya Millennial - A Quick (Battle) Field Guide to the New Culture Wars - The Internet of Beefs

@Annie And also The Cactus and the Weasel, which I remembered just now while writing this. Thank you for the nudge!
