Wild and Precious


Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?– Mary Oliver.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet’s daily walks in the woods and wetlands of Provincetown are a central inspiration for her work.

We have a lot of story to live.

What’s the first line of your first chapter going to be? Eh?


She couldn’t remember the last time she closed the door of a final chapter so hard; the binding now broken, the cover practically torn away.  And as she threw it across the room,  one brittle page slipped from the center and fluttered in front of her for a moment before being swept through the arched window of the villa and carried softly to rest in the gardens below.
