CJ, I love your idea! And I'm going to include Mary Oliver as one of our authors for February. It will give everyone a nice varied selection to choose from.
Thank you for your input!

I'm revisiting Mary Oliver's poetry. It never disappoints me and no matter how many times I read a poem - there is always something new to discover.

"Every day
I see or hear
something
that more or less

kills me
with delight,
that leaves me
like a needle

in the haystack
of light.
It was what I was born for--
to look, to listen,

to lose myself
inside this soft world--
to instruct myself
over and over

in joy,
and acclamation."

from the poem "Mindful"
in *Why I Wake Early* by Mary Oliver

In February I thought maybe we could do something a little different.

I will suggest several authors and you can choose a book by one (or more) to read. I think that as we all share what we've chosen that will lead to some great discussion and perhaps some new books that we hadn't heard of yet.

I have a few authors in mind. Is there anyone in particular YOU'D like to see either in February or in upcoming months?
