This is the blog of Gretel Enck of Marfa, Texas.

Welcome to the silly, comforting blog,
to paraphrase Mary Oliver.
(and we all should, regularly)

The blog is not the world.
It isn't even the first page of the world...

But the blog wants to flower, like a flower.
It knows that much...

It wants to open itself,
like the door of a little temple,
so that you might step inside and be cooled and refreshed,
and less yourself than part of everything...

Find the real poem in all its glory and inspiration here.
