The soft animal of my body

“You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”

—Mary Oliver 


Had a quiet Monday morning here with my coffee as my boys were still curled up, snoozing together,

as the city still seemed to be sleeping — only the occasional car passing by,

and the sun had only just started to peek through spring clouds.

The soft animal of my body wanted this — after the busy, fun-filled weekend — and I relished the slow start to my day.

Now, as my day continues to unfold, and the city around me becomes active — I’m creating my own escape here with music and quiet activities that soothe where the busy-ness cannot.

The sun calls me now, but not for activity — although the indulgences of the weekend start to create “shoulds” in my mind —

— but the soft animal of my body desires nurturing and slowness, quietness and breeze —

— and so, I prepare to head to one of my favorite quiet places with my books, journals and laptop, my thoughts and my questions for Cosmic Team,

and I will write with a sunny glass of rosé in the open air.

What does the soft animal of your body want today? 
And how might you nourish her with exactly that?
