Giving Thanks

haiku with bare tree and falling leaves

old anxieties
wind tugs at browning leaves
time to let go

Happy Thanksgiving! I was recently reminded of this lovely poem fragment by Mary Oliver:

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

Poetry and Honey

poetry and honey

At a Halloween party twenty years ago today, a slinky black cat crossed paths with a tall, blue-eyed sea captain. The sea captain had an exceptionally kind and intelligent face, a warm heart, and a great sense of humor.

And so I met my future husband, father of my children, partner in life adventures, and best friend. Happy 20th anniversary to us! And it’s palindrome day to boot: 11-02-2011.
