[Book Quote Tuesday] The Comfort of Mary Oliver’s Words

Mary Oliver's "Consequences."

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

I have been slowly going through all of Mary Oliver’s books that I can download via Overdrive through our National Library. I know that I will miss her voice terribly, and thought that it would be beautiful to get to know more of her writing. These particular lines caught me at a time when I felt somewhat lost – and then these words illuminate, like the moon; and all is right with the world.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Singapore. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she serves as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads or meeting up with her book club friends, she is smashing that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life.
