For Tom Shaw S.S.J.E. (1945-2014)

January 1, 0001

by Mary Oliver

As you might have realized, Mary Oliver and her poems have the great impact on me. Especially this one from “Felicity” reminds me of the loss of a great friend who used to love me to space and beyond. I had called her weeks before she passed away and told her, “Meet me for Lunch in New York City, I have a good news for you”. The week I was about to meet her, I got the saddest news that she passed away. I know this feeling. I know this coldness. May almighty God bless her soul.
