Hey @stitchandletter - Mary Oliver wrote you this Permission Slip. Can we all write this over and over and over and over today and share it in a million ways and a million places? (Actually, maybe I mean that! For all you #the100dayproject people, make this your project today!) What would happen if we all lived into the powerful, colorful, wild fullness of running free and being good TO OURSELVES, and only ourselves? What happens when we heed only our deepest wants, and uncinch the tethers of goodness? (That’s an actual question! Tell me your answers!!) . . For me it would include two new brilliantly colored native flower tattoos on the back of my arms (and if only I were lucky enough to get into @block_ness queue one day!) Taking way more days off work. Finishing the house in ridiculous color palettes and spending a little more money without being so nervous about it. Speaking truth to power, especially men in power who preach condescendingly or don’t take me seriously. And, it would probably mean letting myself FEEL anger more often instead of tamping it down and OF COURSE it would involve eight million more NOs!!! #afiercepractice #365quote #no #youdonothavetobegood #maryoliver #permissionslip

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 your 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 praries 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. #maryoliver #wildgeese #belonging #whatilearnedtoday #poetry #myplaceintheworld #home

Softening, releasing, moving, swirling, massaging, surrendering, forgiving, allowing, breathing in, breathing out✨ how can we melt the boundaries around our heart and open the possibility of love in this moment?

"Dog is one of the messengers of that such and still magical (wild) world. The dog would remind us of the pleasures of the body with its graceful physicality, and the acuity and rapture of the senses, and the beauty of forest and ocean and rain and our own breath. There is not a dog that romps and runs but we learn from him." - Mary Oliver. . . . 9 miles with my boy yesterday. We found a pocket of sun around Lake Silverwood, but you can see the cloud oceans awaiting us in the distance. We also stumbled across a nice overlook to sit and have breakfast (first picture) in the shade. #hikingwithdogs #adoptdontshop #optoutside #wildcalifornia #socalhiker #lakesilverwood #maryoliver #sunrisesundays #staywild #dogsthathike

* M y s t e r i e s, Y e s * {by Mary Oliver} 🌀 Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous to be understood. ✧ How grass can be nourishing in the mouths of the lambs. How rivers and stones are forever in allegiance with gravity while we ourselves dream of rising. How two hands touch and the bonds will never be broken. How people come, from delight or the scars of damage, to the comfort of a poem. ✧ Let me keep my distance, always, from those who think they have the answers. ✧ Let me keep company always with those who say “Look!” and laugh in astonishment, and bow their heads. 🌀 . . . . #mondaymusings #mystery #wonder #reverence #embracethemystery #embracethemoment #embracenature #naturepoetry #maryoliver #magicalgarden #riverstones #skyheart #purepeace #oasis #exploretocreate #hudsonvalley #kykuit

Tell me.. What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? 💧🌲💧🌲💧 • My hands are deep olive and the sun kisses them often even through the rain.I remember running away from rainy days, not wanting to drive, or annoyed to walk in it. As I’ve explored more of what the rain provides us each time it rains I am in awe of its unique way of adding balance to our lives. I still think the smell of wet hair is one of the most unattractive things ever 😝. Even so, I’m glad it has poured. •• How does the rain make you feel? Spontaneous?

I'm a little obsessed with Mary Oliver right now. Is binge reading poetry a thing? Except I get through one or two poems and am just speechless and can't read any more because I need to spend time sitting with the one I just read. Then I try to read it outloud to my husband or my kids and they smile and tell me that it's nice but I'm still thinking about it so I go write some lines down and then maybe I can move on to another. Do you like poetry or have a favorite poet? . From Franz Marc's Blue Horses by Mary Oliver . #poetry #poet #poem #maryoliver #calligraphy #pointedpen #copperplate #engrossersscript #flourishforum

First, I stood still and thought of nothing. Then I began to listen. Then I was filled with gladness–– and that's when it happened, when I seemed to float, to be, myself, a wing or a tree–– and I began to understand what the bird was saying... — Mary Oliver

“Instructions for living life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it. “ - Mary Oliver. New post on the blog. The fever hit in our household, and it was no fun. We did get out to dig for obsidians, though, and the rain had washed up quite a bit. Also thinking about writing about this experience here in Guatemala, something along the lines of Out Of Africa. Maybe one day, when the kids are all grown up (“big like you”, says Mia), and I’m no longer in the thick of it!

Wild Geese by Mary Oliver You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

Shameless Bday selfie. ✨ Every year around my birthday for my whole life, that is when the more catastrophic life events happen. Both horrible things and miracles. Both things that knock me on me ass AND things that completely make up for all of the horrible things that have happened. It is always balanced though. I sometimes wonder if it is because my bday literally is the first day of gemini season and so my lessons on duality become intensified...but these are things I welcome as a healer, a human, someone here to learn & grow. The ebb & flow is my gift. It always brings me back to my favorite Mary Oliver poem as well. "Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift." Here's to being at level 26 in the matrix. It's been weird. . . . . . . . . #vsco #vscocam #witch #magic #magical #create #selfie #witchesofinstagram #maryoliver

Monday Morning Reflection:: “Sometimes I need only to stand wherever I am to be blessed.” #maryoliver ... As I walked through the garden this morning, I was almost startled by all it stirred up in me. It seemed to speak to me in the language of flowers — and I wanted to praise every little bud and leaf for the way they fill me with joy, for the way they bring me back to myself. I went inside and wrote in my journal. ... Wishing you a week in which ordinary things seem magical!🌹

•When I am among the trees• 🌲 When I am among the trees, especially the willows and the honey locust, equally the beech, the oaks and the pines, they give off such hints of gladness. I would almost say that they save me, and daily. I am so distant from the hope of myself, in which I have goodness, and discernment, and never hurry through the world but walk slowly, and bow often. Around me the trees stir in their leaves and call out, “Stay awhile.” The light flows from their branches. And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say, “and you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled with light, and to shine.” Mary Oliver. 📷Cambre d'Aze #alive #nevestopexploring #liveauthentic #energymedicine #salvatgesilliures #plenadevida #pirineus #moutains #moutainlife #bewild #outdooractivities #snow #lovinglife❤️ #naturephotography #thenatureproject #positivevibes #poesia #maryoliver #naturepoetry #shemovesmountains

“It was spring  and finally I heard him  among the first leaves -  then I saw him clutching the limb  in an island of shade  with his red-brown feathers  all trim and neat for the new year.  First, I stood still  and thought of nothing.  Then I began to listen.  Then I was filled with gladness -  and that's when it happened,  when I seemed to float,  to be, myself, a wing or a tree -  and I began to understand  what the bird was saying,  and the sands in the glass  stopped  for a pure white moment  while gravity sprinkled upward  like rain, rising,  and in fact  it became difficult to tell just what it was that was singing -  it was the thrush for sure, but it seemed  not a single thrush, but himself, and all his brothers,  and also the trees around them,  as well as the gliding, long-tailed clouds  in the perfectly blue sky - all, all of them  were singing.  And, of course, yes, so it seemed,  so was I.  Such soft and solemn and perfect music doesn't last  for more than a few moments.  It's one of those magical places wise people  like to talk about.  One of the things they say about it, that is true,  is that, once you've been there,  you're there forever.  Listen, everyone has a chance.  Is it spring, is it morning?  Are there trees near you,  and does your own soul need comforting?  Quick, then - open the door and fly on your heavy feet; the song  may already be drifting away.” — Mary Oliver ✨ Currently listening to the birds sing through the open window 😍 and I thought this poem was perfect since I started reading The Secret Garden and I've just met the little robin redbreast that lives in it!

When my words aren’t describing restorative yoga quite the way I want them to, I share this poem: Today I’m flying low and I’m not saying a word. I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep. The world goes on as it must, the bees in the garden rumbling a little, the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten. And so forth. But I’m taking the day off. Quiet as a feather. I hardly move though really I’m traveling a terrific distance. Stillness. One of the doors into the temple. Mary Oliver
