The Summer Day
by Mary Oliver

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean -
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down -
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

lr update

Our living room has been slowly evolving over the last 12 months since we moved in.
Here's the progression & latest addition:

Starting out

Addition of tulip chairs, pillows, and coffee table.

New rug, yellow tray, and pillow change.

And the latest, a curtain change to Curtainworks Othello Modern Geometric Curtains! Great quality & the price can't be beat (all 4 panels for under $100).
Although I loved the Ikea Merete Curtains we used to have, they didn't warm up the room & it always felt like something was missing.
But, not anymore!

Well hello there Seams & friends of Seams! It has been far too long! To make up for my hiatus, I bring you Julius Shulman inspiration. If you haven't seen this film, it is a MUST!

Thank you for the recommendation AR!
