"I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
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?"

Um, are you kidding me?? You have Mary Oliver on your blog? Please find me on Facebook, friend me, and read my profile. Then buy a plane ticket to Boston sometime after the Connollys move here and we are going to love each other.

Are you KIDDING me?!
