  1. I was not familiar with “Peonies” and was so happy to hear Mary read it this morning. Her poetry is like balm, but a working balm, too. Real and fierce and kind.
    I also watched an anatomy lesson on the shoulder joint previously, and it seems to me like these two parts of my life: poetry like Mary’s and lessons about the inner animal share a common thread.
    We are born of the conditions of our earthly environment, and we can meet our lives with information, story, dreams, movement, and metaphor.
