General Update and a Poem!

I am über late posting today. Blame Mawusi. I have become a slave to what I love. I am working on taming the madness. School will start soon, I really do not want to start a new year all stressed out. I probably will go more into this on another day, but today I will share a good poem that I 'chance' upon yesterday. I wanted to play that game where one opens a book and it falls on a page and lo and behold there is the poem for you! I, of course, had to try a couple of times before I found my poem.

The Old Poets of China
by Mary Oliver

Wherever I am, the world comes after me. 
It offers me its busyness.  It does not believe
that I do not want it.  Now I understand
why the old poets of China went so far and high 
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
Listen to my reading of "The Old Poets of China" below:


  1. Oh I love Mary Oliver. Thank you for sharing this poem and photo -- I like the pairing!

  2. In a few more hours you can tell me exactly how much you like Mary Oliver! I have a book of her poems...I can remember exactly how I came about it. Glad you like the pairing.
