I am pretty sure Mary Oliver has it right.
Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.
I am astonished. Every day I slow down and take the time to pay attention. And every day, I am astonished.
And usually my way to tell about it is to share photos I’ve taken. It may not be in words, but to me it is a poetry of a different kind. A visual kind of poetry that makes me come alive.
