To Live in This World…


#256/365 Paintings

The words in this painting are from an excerpt of a poem by Mary Oliver that I love:

In Blackwater Woods
“…To live in this world
you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.”
~ Mary Oliver
