Life is Grace

Seeking the Blessings in the Chaos

Okay, I wasn’t going to reblog anymore, but when I stumbled across this post written by my favorite dinosaur, I just couldn’t resist. I just discovered a new poet today–David Whyte–and thoughts of Mary Oliver, Marie Howe, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Carolyn Forche all suddenly began dancing in my brain. I don’t think i could live without poetry. Once, in a book by Mary Stewart (Nine Coaches Waiting) the narrator mentioned that “daddy was right, poetry is awfully good material to think with.” I think my dinosaur (Rara) is spot on here. (Love you for this, Rara!)

    Love you, too, lovely! I’m always happy to know other people are moved by poetry, too! 🙂

    1. Is it? Damn it. I just can’t get the hang of wordpress. But I had a blast last night checking out your blog at length! I’ve always had a fascination for dinosaurs, ever since I was a little girl. Drove my parents crazy!
