“I wanted to hurry into the work of my life; I wanted to know, whoever I was, I was alive for a little while.” - Mary Oliver · · this poem spoke to me when I was confronting a lot of baggage and fear about moving forward with my writing. about putting my everything into it. about sharing it with you. but you all have been so, so lovely and I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for your support. thank you ❤️

sometimes the weight you carry is there because you don't want to let it leave. you don't want to let go of whatever, or whoever, is causing it. even if they would want you to be free. especially if they would want you to be free.

"I don't know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. 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?" · · woke up with this in my head. I still can't fathom how one person was able to write words to carry you through so many situations, even her own loss. excerpt from “The Summer Day” by Mary Oliver · · #maryoliver#maryoliverpoetry#poetryisnotdead#poetry#poetrycommunity

I just learned of Mary Oliver's passing. I am both heartbroken and honored to have existed on this planet at the same time as her. she was beyond inspiration. not only to my writing, but to my life. her ability to communicate emotion, vulnerability, hardship, strength, hope, and of course, the astounding relation we have to this earth is unbelievable. thank you for giving us wonder. thank you for giving us hope. thank you for giving us poetry. rest in peace. · · When it's over, I want to say to all my life / I was a bride married to amazement. - Mary Oliver, When Death Comes · · this is an excerpt from Dogfish. #maryoliver#maryoliverpoetry#poetryisnotdead#poetry#poetrycommunity

you can always make a wish, but the flowers will help carry your message. · · photography is my main creative outlet besides writing. if I feel stuck, or like I can't make anything - I just take my camera and search for something beautiful. there's always so much. ✨ do you have any creative outlets to help replenish yourself? ✨ · · this picture is from Reykjavik, Iceland. one of the most breathtaking places I've been to.

I am tired of my feelings being weaponized because I am a woman. of my sadness being forbidden. of my sadness being a ‘tactic’. of my anger being irrational and my happiness being fake. we should all be able to hold our emotions. to feel them. to live them. comment with a 👏 if you’ve felt the same. · · sharing is caring so tag your friends ❤️ · · follow @reneepadgham for more

hi friends, I wanted to say something really thoughtful but I've been writing all day (excited to share soon!) and my brain is on low. instead, I'll share this: today I learned there is a correct position to rest your tongue in and I am not doing it right 🤷‍♀️
