  • Mood:
As a Christmas present, my wife bought me two custom-made suits. On the inside lining near the pocket, I had the option to have sown in a quote or any other words I wanted. I chose a quote by Mary Oliver:

I couldn't fit the whole quote which is:

Instructions for living a life:
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.

(You can read the full poem here.)

With word of Mary Oliver's passing, I am deeply saddened and feel like the world has lost something very special. Her wisdom, insight, and deep love for the world will be missed.
