    MORE nuts!

    Penance:

    Messenger
    By Mary Oliver

    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.
    The phoebe, the delphinium.
    The sheep in the pasture, and the pasture.
    Which is mostly rejoicing, since all the ingredients are here,

    which is gratitude, to be given a mind and a heart
    and these body-clothes,
    a mouth with which to give shouts of joy
    to the moth and the wren, to the sleepy dug-up clam,
    telling them all, over and over, how it is
    that we live forever.

    Cyber nuts!

    Penance:

    Thirst
    By Mary Oliver

    Another morning and I wake with thirst
    for the goodness I do not have. I walk
    out to the pond and all the way God has
    given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord,
    I was never a quick scholar but sulked
    and hunched over my books past the hour
    and the bell; grant me, in your mercy,
    a little more time. Love for the earth
    and love for you are having such a long
    conversation in my heart. Who knows what
    will finally happen or where I will be sent,
    yet already I have given a great many things
    away, expecting to be told to pack nothing,
    except the prayers which, with this thirst,
    I am slowly learning.

    Cool on the loom. I have always wanted one. My dad made me a small one when I was young. It sounds like you are in a very creative time of your life.

    Felix sounds wonderful but I knew he would be as he is yours. They grow up so fast. It seems like he was just a baby.

    Cool about your son getting married. That is amazing too.

    It sounds like you are doing great health wise. I am still working on getting my labs back to normal.

    Thanks for letting me know you are okay. I appreciate it. We need to keep in touch better.

    You have been quiet for far too long. I am wondering what is up or down with you. Sending you love.

    It was good. LOL. I'm a firm believer in getting it out. Internalizing it is toxic. I love a good primal scream. I don't keep my anger inside.

    There are a ton of people who Christmas is not this magical time where you get everything imaginable plus a BMW. Some of us are just trying to get from pay check to pay check. We have suffered loss. We are lonely. We have a right to feel what we feel.

    It is always good to hear from you. Friends and sisters from another mother should always touch base on holidays. emoticon
