nature – your one wild and precious life

»… Lynch points to the poetry of Mary Oliver, keen observer of the natural world, and especially the poem The Summer Day. After spending a day in the grass, both »idle and blessed«, the poet asks:

»Tell me, what else should I have done? / 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?«

Nothing is more important to Oliver and Lynch than a deep immersion in the present as felt through the senses, and the accompanying feelings of beauty, belonging and connection.«
