“….Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precous life?”
These 2 lines from Mary Oliver’s “The Summer Day” stopped me in my thoughts and I had a surge of emotion, and although I have a sense that our Soul reincarnates in many lives, it brought me to realise the importance and wonder of this lifetime.
