Mary Oliver

"One must work with the creative powers — for not to work with is to work against; in art as in spiritual life, there is no neutral place."

American Poet
1935 -

Sometimes people refuse to accept the gifts they have been given.  And some even fight the gifts or deny them.  We need to embrace our gifts and accept the responsibility that goes with the gift.  Be happy to work with what you have been given.    Celebrate your creative powers.

Here is Mary Oliver reading 2 of  her poems as well as being interview by Coleman Barks.
