Celebrating Mary Oliver (1935-2019)


















"In the beginning I was so young and such a stranger to myself I hardly existed. I had to go out into the world and see it and hear it and react to it, before I knew at all who I was, what I was, what I wanted to be.” 

(Mary Oliver)

yes, thank you for this. so many of her poems that have been posted the last couple of days bring painful recognition. I'm tearing up. A lot.
