a little something for the soul ...

Just listen and be refreshed ...

Thank you Effy for sharing this over on Wild Precious Studio. Head over and be inspired.


  1. oh darling citizen
    thank you <3

  2. Thanks sweet friend.. xo Karen

  3. Didn't it make you take a deep, remembering breath?


  4. The woman herself reading the poem. Who is she. I loved her wise beautiful presence.

  5. Oh I just realized it actually is Mary Oliver. I thought it was another woman reading Mary.
    Thanks again for posting it.

  6. That is the poet, Mary Oliver ... and I believe her dog Percy? She has a great series of poems about him, my favorite being "I Ask Percy How I Should Live My Life"
    Love, love, love, say Percy.
    And run as fast as you can
    along the shining beach, or the rubble, or the dust.

    Then, go to sleep.
    Give up your body heat, your beating heart.
    Then, trust.

  7. Oh Lis, this really touched me. How wonderful! I have just entered the world of Mary Oliver and the fact that she writes poems about Percy makes me love her even more.
