Keeping Your Mind On What Matters

This morning on our NPR station, Garrison Keilor read a Mary Oliver poem that sounded like it belongs in her ethical will (and my everyday life!). I especially love the lines:

"Let me

which is my work,
which is mostly standing still and learning to be

You can read the poem and listen to Garrison's reading of it at:

The Writers Almanac

What a great poem to inspire anyone on a new day!
