taking the world into your arms

Through the Land of the Lakotas - South Dakota

                                                       "When it's over, I want to say: all my life
                                          I was a bride married to amazement.
                                          I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. 

                                         When it is over, I don't want to wonder
                                         if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
                                         I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened,
                                         or full of argument. 

                                         I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.” 

                                         ― Mary Oliver

This 12-12-12 post is dedicated to my friend Charla Lawyer who constantly inspires those around her that it's never too late to start taking the world into your arms, married to amazement, wandering instead of wondering.
