A poem by Mary Oliver, Wild Geese, a confession about pleasing others, a story about my Father, immigration and ancestry with the topic of “niceness”, a live self-forgiveness of myself for ways I judge myself, change your life any moment, and What would a horse do?
I loved this line from Mary Oliver’s poem, Wild Geese: “You only need to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.” This touches deep into my heart and body. It reminds me how simple it can be on some levels — that what we love is what we love. To allow what it is that your body already loves to be.
