The poet Mary Oliver passed died yesterday.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if Mary Oliver’s passing yesterday and the renewed interest in her life-saving poetry inspired more people to change their lives? To stop confusing excess with success? To let go of accumulating things in an effort to feel secure and valued and important? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this simple question gave you the courage to change your course and head toward peace and simplicity ? Toward love and true connection as the trappings of a life well lived rather than more and bigger houses, jobs, bank accounts, schedules? It could happen. It may happen.
