“The world’s otherness is antidote to confusion [and] standing within this otherness — the beauty and the mystery of the world, out in the fields or deep inside books — can re-dignify the worst-stung heart.”

I read this last night and this line keeps running through my thought today... out in the fields or deep inside books — can re-dignify the worst-stung heart.” So true!ReplyDelete
I see your fall-colors our in full swing. Ours are fading with each robust gust of wind.But I find my eyes compelled to linger on the landscape's letting go.
I was a chaperone on Danny's field trip to a Nature Center yesterday, the hike was my favorite part. I love digging in the garden, but I've forgotten how much I love fields, and woods, especially in the fall; being part of this "otherness" Mary Oliver writes about. The hike was way too short for me :(Delete
