This On Being was by far my favorite thus far. Krista Tippet interviews Marie Howe in one of the most intriguing hours on On being in my opinion.

Marie Howe takes us through her upbringing as a member of a fairly large catholic family. She describes the feeling of how different life is now compared to when she was growing up. She used to live in a huge house with no privacy and lots of siblings where now she lives in a little apartment with her daughter she adopted. She never imagined herself as a poet until after her father died she needed to find a way to cope and "learn something" Marie completely amazes me when she reads her poems, especially the one of her brother, it really makes you realize the Here and now. She also talks about how poems and poetry are counterspells for everyday life.

This interview was amazing in so many ways because it really does get you to think about how we need to take time and find happiness. With technology and always being connected to TV and phones. We need to take a time to find our happiness. I really like the story This On Being was by far my favorite thus far.

I really like the story about in new york she saw all of these arrows in chalk saying "Happiness this way!" then one day there was a circle that said "happiness here" and people were lining up to stand in it for a moment. That right there is the thing that we have to do. We have to find our happiness and enjoy it. about in new york she saw all of these arrows in chalk saying "Happiness this way!" then one day there was a circle that said "happiness here" and people were lining up to stand in it for a moment.
