Delightful and fleeting

To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work. — Mary Oliver

And, to this I’ll add: I love hearing the birds sing and feeling the winds blow and seeing the irises and peonies bloom and watching the river move slowly — and quickly, after a rain.

Paying attention is our best chance. As a species, I mean.
