Something Beautiful. Listen.

The last couple of days, I have been listening, over and over, to a woman who was being interviewed by Krista Tippett on the NPR show, Being, formerly known as Speaking of Faith. I was blown away by the stunningly beautiful poems she was speaking that had been written by a poet I'd never heard of before.

As the translator spoke them, and told of what they meant to her, I was not sure I could take it all in, in one hearing. There was so much being said, a wealth of ideas, or maybe just new way of looking at what we see. A different way of holding the concerns that many of us have, a new thing to consider, that can make even the hard things softer to hold. You can listen to a Wild Love for the World here.

I spend a good deal of this day searching for a video of Joanna Macy speaking Rilke's poems, but couldn't find one. Instead I found something else of value which I'll post tomorrow.
