A very happy Monday, gentle readers.
I’d like to take a moment and share a tranquil and enjoyable NPR story about Mary Oliver’s new collection of poetry, A Thousand Mornings.
In the interview, Oliver reflects on her disciplined morning routine and her expressions of a wildly changing world through verse. Admittedly, there is a part of me that wishes I would adopt a similar way of starting the day and approaching the outside world with a fresh perspective. And, of course, anyone who can incorporate napping cats into verse catches my attention.
