I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?" -Mary Oliver
*on our morning walk...it really is this green over here!
*at the park. Tara loves climbing!
*string painting in her art class...
I had a gazillion and one things to do today-but I woke up and decided to "stroll through the fields" with my Tara... gaze at the sky, absorb her fleeting baby-ness and just be.
