Be Astonished

Instructions for living a life.
1. Pay attention.
2. Be astonished.
3. Tell about it.

— Mary Oliver

*

“One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
