If you drive past horses and don’t say horses you’re a psychopath. If you see an airplane but don’t point it out. A rainbow, a cardinal, a butterfly. If you don’t whisper-shout albino squirrel! Deer! Red fox! If you hear a woodpecker and don’t shush everyone around you into silence. If you find an unbroken sand dollar in a tide pool. If you see a dorsal fun breaking the water. If you see the moon and don’t say oh my god look at the moon. If you smell smoke and don’t search for fire. If you feel yourself receding, receding, and don’t tell anyone until you’re gone.

Have you read her Tweets? She’s amazing there, too!
Oh yes, indeed! I was a fan of her Keep Moving series of tweets for a long time before she ever compiled them into a book. She’s got such a genuine soul. ❤️❤️❤️
