So, I’ve recently started listening to “Fresh Air”, an NPR broadcast weeknights at 10:30pm EST (at least that is the time that I start to listen to it since I get off of work at that time). Terry Gross hosts, and she has really interesting discussions with what the NPR website says are “luminaries.” Now, she had Seth Macfarlane on there a few nights ago, so I don’t know how illuminating he is (he’s hella funny), but maybe our lexicons are a bit different. Anyway, poet Marie Howe was on last night, and she read some amazing poems. You should check it out:
This was my day yesterday, thought I’d share it with all of you.
happy monday indeed.
Bearings taken, markings, cardinal points,
Options, obstinacies, dug heels, and distance,
Here and there and now and then, a stance.” —from “The Aerodrome” by Seamus Heaney from his book District and Circle
