 I just learned that Mary Oliver died. She lived a long life, into her eighties, and wrote some immortal lines that will live on long beyond her sojourn on this earth. A poet could certainly do worse. Here are two of my favorites: The Summer Day, which posed one of the best questions I’ve ever been asked (Tell me, what is it you plan to do/with your one wild and precious life?) and Wild Geese, which taught us all to be kinder to ourselves.

Had we but world enough and time . . .

My life has been a coy mistress for quite some time now. In fact, I think it started a decade or so ago with my second marriage and second child. There so much I want out of each and every day and I resent all the time I have to give to the "business I waste my heart on."
