This is a simple collection of beautiful words. They are poems, quotes, lyrics and excerpts that have resonated with me. They are words that have made me smile, laugh, cry and sometimes simply take pause. I hope you enjoy my blog, lovingly named after the closing lines of Mary Oliver’s The Summer Day:

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?
