Today, January 17, 2019, "beloved poet and bard of the natural world" Mary Oliver passed away.



She is well-known for the last two lines in this poem.

I just thought permies would want a space held here to honor and share about her.

She was an elegant artist who enriched our perception. So many "artists" will pass and be forgotten, she will live in our increased appreciation of the beauty that we have been given.

I was working on a hydraulic cylinder today. Can this be made private or I'm going to lose my man card immediately.

It's way too late Brother.

I feel the same way though.
 
I got this tall by not having enough crisco in my diet as a kid. This ad looks like it had plenty of shortening:
