What if the answer to discontent, restlessness, and/or weariness of spirit is not to escape . . .
but to sink your bare toes into wild earth? To feel sun on your upturned face? To let breeze kiss your cheek?
Many of us--we phoenix souls--flock to Mary Oliver for nourishment, inspiration, restoration. I recently discovered a new-to-me gem that made my heart gallop.
I used these glorious words to create a gift for my sweet mama on Mother's Day, stamping and hand-lettering on one of my watercolored backgrounds (one of many created for our magazine's pages).
After delivering the original to my mom (you know her! Our beloved Bitter & Beautiful columnist), I knew I wanted to create a printable for myself to keep. Then, of course, I realized you might love it, too!
Kindred, you deserve to feel wild joy. Deep renewal. Soul-deep care. Come walk barefoot through the vibrant pages of Vitality. Let us tend to your tired places.
EnJOY, my friend. May we all be in-joy today.
with love & gratitude,
