Another favorite poem

Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.
~~ Mary Oliver

I think I could add a few more lines to this poem, but very few.  "Start a farm" would be one of them. :)

What lines would you add?

Cultivate your life - you are what you grow - inch by inch, row by row,

Diana Dyer, MS, RD

That about sums it up!

I agree with Kateri!

Oh, and maybe wake early.

A quick "hello" before I begin my work day. I hope you're well. I'll be back to read and be astonished. Sorry for my absence. One good reason but many poor ones.

xx, Elaine

So nice to 'see you' again :) Mary Oliver does wake early - she considers doing so 'her work' and then writes about what she sees and feels. I think you and Kateri must also wake early based on the photos you both share on your blogs. I will enjoy going back to catch-up and see what i have missed on both of your beautiful blogs, too.
