I’m going to be part of today’s “Wild and Precious Life” service at the Unitarian Society of New Haven. I’ll be one of five New Haveners trying to understand the magic and mystery of being a human being. (I’m in the middle representing, you know, middle age.) If you’re interested, here’s the link. See you Monday! —John Stoehr

    Sorry I missed this. I love that Mary Oliver poem – used it in one of my courses last semester and asked students what they want to do with theirs.

    You sound much nicer than I expected. From some of the severe tones in your writing I expected a more Sam Elliott sound. 🙂
