An excerpt from Mary Oliver's 'Upstream' Selected Essays....
‘Sometimes the desire to be lost again, as long ago, comes over me like a vapor. With growth into adulthood, responsibilities claimed me, so many heavy coats. I didn’t choose them, I don’t fault them, but it took time to reject them. Now in the spring I kneel, I put my face into the packets of violets, the dampness, the freshness, the sense of ever-ness. Something is wrong, I know it, if I don’t keep my attention on eternity. May I be the tiniest nail in the house of the universe, tiny but useful. May I stay forever in the stream. May I look down upon the windflower and the bull thistle and the coreopsis with the greatest respect.’
I couldn't have said it better, MO.
A house of the universe indeed.
A 3-layer and tiny moonstone tribute
to one of my most favorite poets,
in her element,
in my favorite collection of words she ever put together.
'Upstream' is a drink of water, and if you haven't had a chance to crack into it,
I suggest you pour yourself a cuppa, and do it.
4mm Moonstone on a stack of 3 layers of scooped silver,
the top stamped with a design of my own,
my signature on the last scoops backside.
