I have been reading Joanna Macy's Rilke for at least a decade. After I have observed 13 things from my kitchen window, and written them down, I read from "A Year with Rilke."
From his poems, I have gained a better understanding of our basic humanity, of how to listen to the earth and give back, the net beyond and yet within, big enough to hold all of us, and how every living thing is essential to its well-being. Rilke is the poet that sustains, Joanna Macy the beam of the light that highlights the way into Rilke's profound reflections. Praise is my only response.
