As we ease further into 2015 and slide closer to spring, I can’t help but feel optimistic. My tiny little space in this vast universe is secured, and what’s not to love about that? I don’t know what turns the path of life will take or how the future will unfold. I don’t know how (or IF) I’ll make a living out of writing (or art in general), but as winter slowly slinks off, I’m not worried about the answers to these questions. For now, I’ll just “be.”
And so, my fellow writers, I’ll leave you this month with the last lines from Mary Oliver’s “Wild Geese” to savor, enjoy, and inspire:
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.
To read the poem in its entirety or to hear Mary read it, click here. Happy writing!!

Thanks for sharing it! By the way, I am commenting directly from the Reader. I tried to go to your page but encountered a problem. You might want to check on that.

Hi, J.Gi. Thanks for the heads-up!
p.s. I logged out of WP. Went to this post and sent a test comment (using the word “test”)…it worked (so I deleted it)…maybe it was a momentary glitch? Let me know if you have further problems, and I’ll go to the WP gurus. 🙂

It may not be your page after all. ‘Cause when I went to another page, I got the same result, a threat notification from McAffee actually. Not really sure why. Could be nothing. Wonder if people are getting the same results with others’ pages…

Great attitude! We could all use a bit of positivity each day.
