"...The pilgrim sees the white linen with the ikon on it, and starts so violently that his legs give a little skip. This unexpected sight has an overpowering effect upon him. He huddles together and stands as though rooted to the spot, with wide-open mouth and staring eyes. For three minutes he is silent as through he could not believe his eyes..."
-- Chekov from 'The Dead Body'
Brett is the pilgrim and his amazement has brought Chekov and Carver full circle for writers that want to focus intently on 'place' in their writing. He is starting something great for Yakima's poetry community.
