20 February 2013

Making a quiet space
Finding the right book to read
Being still, at peace.

20 February 2013
On getting a copy of Mary Oliver's new book of poetry, A Thousand Mornings.  Here's one:

I Go Down To The Shore
I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what shall--
what should I do?  And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do.
