Mary Oliver

Listen, I’m going to keep it short today.

Click here and listen to Mary Oliver on the radio show On Being. A remarkable poet in a remarkable interview about poetry. (iTunes/Podcasts here.)

I first heard it en route to Alice Parker’s home last summer – and I can say that the parallels between Mary’s insights and Alice’s were many.

I’m planning to listen to the unedited (90 minute) version today, but Krista Tippett does an amazing job of curating her radio shows, so you should definitely start with the episode version.

I just finished Mary’s new book Felicity last night and highly recommend it.
