“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
In the family of things.”

Mary Oliver’s A Poetry Handbook has been recommended to me and I plan to live inside it. Yes.

Saw this on Facebook. Thought it was brilliant. I immediately turned everything backwards. I’m ready.
I’m obsessed with streamlining my closet. I already did a major clean out a few months ago, donated bag loads of stuff, sold the good stuff on eBay and the things I couldn’t let go of were hung up in the guest bedroom closet. Anything still in that closet at the end of the year will be donated.

What I great idea! I’m obsessed with minimizing my life right now…

NYC celebs remember iconic Meatpacking eatery Pastis | New York Post

Last time I was there, we saw Dina Lohan and I got sick from the mussels. Pasties will still be missed.
