"My work is loving the world." Oh what a fantastic line! "my work, which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished" Amazing!


Love Mary Oliver...and love this poem. Are you familiar with The Swan? Another amazing piece. "Let me keep my mind on what matters" ...what a lovely thought to tuck in my pocket like a shell to keep always. Thank you for this Saturday gift.


Karissa. Her wordcraft is startling in its simplicity and its ability to distill the very essence of things.

Patsy, a kindred spirit she...and we. I just read The Swan. Piercing and lovely. "a perfect commotion of silk and linen", "a shrill dark music". Gorgeous! "And did you feel it, in your heart, how it pertained to everything?" Yes. Yes I did. :)
