Friday Inspiration from Mary Oliver

This line from The Summer Day has followed me since the early 90s and it’s been an anchor for me at many of life’s crossroads. I was sad to hear she’d died, because a dream for me was to send her a copy of my book—with my gratitude to her on the dedication page.

This precious life is made up of moments. Let’s feel as alive as possible for as many as we can. And let’s fight for those moments if they don’t just land in our laps. Find 15 minutes today to experience something meaningful, and grab them.
