General Update and a Poem!

via
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.

  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.
