I think one of the biggest influences on me is Annie Dillard. While she actually only wrote one book of poetry (that being Tickets For A Prayer Wheel; Mornings Like This was a book of found poems) I look towards her non-fiction constanly for inspiration. Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Teaching a Stone to Talk, all of it amazing. It's not about creating your own version of reality, but truly living in the reality you already exist in. That makes sense, right?
