workshops/retreats:


Go! Oh Go!

Go out to see the world!

And wherever you go, be brave

to whomever you meet,

be kind

with whatever you have,

do good.


-Leigh Standley




My work

is

loving the

world.

Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird - equal seekers of sweetness.

Here

the quickening yeast:

there

the blue plums.  Here

the clam deep

in the speckled sand.

Are my boots old?  Is my coat torn?

Am I no longer young and still not half perfect? 

Let me

keep my mind on what matters,

which is

my work,

which is mostly standing still

and

learning to be astonished.


-Mary Oliver
