The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit heals with joy.

— Proverb

“Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,
you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.
You must wake up with sorrow.
You must speak to it till your voice
catches the thread of all sorrows
and you see the size of the cloth.
Then it is only kindness that makes sense anymore…”

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

— Mary Oliver

What you seek is seeking you.

— Rumi

— Mary Oliver, Don’t Hesitate

I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable beautiful and afraid of nothing, as though I had wings.
