Inspiration from a poet

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

This quote from Mary Oliver has been something I’ve thought about since I first discovered it in college. After Mary Oliver’s death was announced yesterday, I saw it on my social media newsfeeds. I have a few poetry collections and went back to reread some favorites. I also came across this quote which defines my day-to-day life.

“Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.”
