Life truly is wild and precious and Mary Oliver’s poem, The Summer Day, that asks this question always reminds me this is so – and to be grateful for everything this wild and precious life has to offer.
[U.S.] Thanksgiving also reminds me to be grateful for everything this life holds. So today I share a short list of gratitudes of my one wild and precious life.
