I don’t always understand Mary Oliver’s poetry, but I love the snippets of hers I come across here and there. Like the great advice I used inside this book:
Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.
That sums up a lot for me.
I don’t always get her poetry, but The Journey took my breath away. It’s about the courage to listen to our own voice, rather than the others screaming around us. Read it, OK?
