“I learned to build bookshelves and brought books to my room, gathering them around me thickly. I read by day and into the night. I thought about perfectibility, and deism, and adjectives, and clouds, and foxes. I locked my door, from the inside, and leaped from the roof and went into the woods, by day or darkness.”
Staying Alive – Mary Oliver.
The stunning art is by the UK artist Rachel Toll. I discovered her pieces on facebook and absolutely love them. Please check out her FB page: www.facebook.com/watercoloursbyrachel.
The text is from the wonderful Wild Geese by Mary Oliver. I’m slightly obssessed with her work at the moment, and recommend anything and everything she has written. www.facebook.com/PoetMaryOliver.
