Mary Oliver: “Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?”

with 5 comments

Just so.

Branch-2-03042015

…for always the new self swimming around in the old world feels itself uniquely verbal. And that is just the point: how the world, moist and bountiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That’s the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. “Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?”

–Mary Oliver, Long Life (Cambridge, MA: Da Capo Press, 2004)
