WILD GEASE: you do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for hundreds miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body I love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile in the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscape,over the prairies and a deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue sky are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting- over and over announcing your place in the family of things. •the great Mary Oliver #100daysofpaintingSHE
