Two extraordinary things I ran across this week:
1) Mary Oliver gives a rare interview on Krista Tippett's podcast On Being. It includes the extraordinary and surprising story about how she wrote her very famous poem "Wild Geese," as well as discussions about her childhood and her recent health issues.
2) Poet Rachel Heimowitz gave me the heads-up on Bread Loaf Conference materials available online in the form of podcasts. Years of craft talks and readings are available, and you can download both categories together, or you can download just craft talks or just readings.
