Day 12: Ode to Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver passed away today. My husband proposed to me citing one of her poems. I give “Wild Geese” out to any friend who is struggling. I incorporate her into as many mindfulness programs as I possibly can. She so gracefully translates her mindful experience of the world into language. Her words remind me of what I already know, if I get quiet enough to remember.

Today, as you read her words, notice how they sink into your soul. Feel the permission to just be as you are. The world will lead the way:


Thank you, Mary Oliver. Thank you.
