This morning I came across the lines from the Mary Oliver poem below. It touched some tender spots in me. How wonderful is that? It looks like it’s time to be still and get in touch with the swirling thoughts and emotions that have emerged.

Enjoy the poem. I’m not sure if it is part of a longer piece, but it is lovely. If you are a Mary Oilver fan, and care to enlighten me as to it’s source, please do. Thanks!

“to live in this world
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go”

– Mary Oliver
