I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am, I am, I am.

MELODY GARDOT / IF THE STARS WERE MINE

Saw a shooting star for the first time yesterday. It was unbelievable, surprisingly violet and white, and went by so quick that I couldn’t even make a wish.

Kyoto Journal: Gion Matsuri. Experimenting with visual and sound collage to create a video-journal about my first time experience at the Gion Festival in Kyoto.

Join me on my Kyoto travels by checking out my video series Kyoto Journal (in progress). This is first one about Gion Matsuri, one of Japan’s most celebrated festivals - I mentioned this a few months ago in this post

 

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

Mary Oliver - Invitation

Wow, another beautiful poem I’ve come across on Tumblr.

Reblogging again. It’s been two years since I last read this poem. And she mentions Rilke! I just finished reading Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet! Ah!

I really like Mary Oliver and Rainer Rilke.
