# 41 Pay Attention

“Instructions for living a life. 
Pay attention. 
Be astonished. 
Tell about it.” 

 Mary Oliver, are you talking to me? You have me completely paying attention, being astonished and, of course, telling everyone about it---7736 more times--by living life.  Love what she says and how she says it and I love her for sharing it with the rest of us. What a gift!

If you haven't read any of her creations, take time to peruse her poetry and you will wish she was perched on your shoulder whispering into your ear as she doles out these little nuggets of profound wisdom. You can find her works at

I could use one of her thoughtful quotes for the next thousand or more days and never tire of her insightful astuteness.

Thanks for reading # 41 of 7777.
