Call Him Unforgettable

Here's a passage from J.D. Salinger's short story "Teddy" which made an impression on me when I first read it as a teenager that's never left:

"I was six when I saw that everything was God, and my hair stood up, and all that," Teddy said. "It was on a Sunday, I remember. My sister was only a very tiny child then, and she was drinking her milk, and all of a sudden I saw that she was God and the milk was God. I mean, all she was doing was pouring God into God, if you know what I mean."
