I mentioned when I wrote the newsletter post that I’ve been wanting to work more with my hands lately. And so, inspired by the poems of Mary Oliver, I tried my luck with a little zine like project. It’s all handmade and all the text inside comes from poems or words of Mary.
Here’s a short animation with it:
“Oliver lived a profoundly simple life: she went on long walks through the woods and along the shoreline nearly every day, foraging for both greens and poetic material. She kept her eyes peeled, always, for animals, which she thought about with great intensity and intimacy, and which often appear in her work not so much as separate species but as kindred spirits.”
From the New Yorker story Mary Oliver helped us stay amazed which offers great insights into her work.
