I have decided to try and reactivate this blog. I still believe in the premise, in the power of sharing the beauty of words.
To that end - if you haven't read the poetry of Mary Oliver, start now. Stop what you're doing, and go read Wild Geese. Or Poppies. Or Breakage. Or anything she has ever written, really.
Seriously, start now.
And if you don't believe me, read this lovely article about her work that I just ran across - it is a wonderful summary of the power of her poetry.
