Heat waves

"Today's poem holds that the act of attention is a form of prayer"

Shauna tweeted this poem today.  I thought you might like it, Mom.

The Summer Day

Mary Oliver

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
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?

Cool shirt

The other half

...of this.  It's that shirt I got at Crossroad's when you were visiting last month.   How's your white one?

They're back

This is interesting:

This looks like it might the same one, or similar. 

Thank you for the sweet gift

Cargo obsession


Did you read about

...the fed up flight attendant?  It makes perfect sense, somehow!


Garden next door

Red railing

Fan palm and yellow guy

...who ran into the picture at the last minute.  It makes it more interesting.  And I only now noticed the great shadows from the tree.

I got teary watching this:

Hazy summer needle

Will it be as good as the book?

I'm looking forward to this.  It opens this Friday the 13th.

Update...no, it wasn't :(.  Such a great bunch of actors.  But the script didn't convey enough humor and irony that Gilbert was able to write on the page.  Wish she had written the script.
