Thought for the Day

Healing is not a science
but the intuitive art of wooing nature.
~ W.H. Auden

English Poet W.H. Auden (1907 - 1973) published more than 25 collections of poetry. He was a noted playwright, a librettist, an essayist, and an editor. He is considered by many to be the greatest English poet of the 20th Century.

An excellent resource for all things Auden is the W.H. Auden Society.

Love the quote -- I am wooing my nature back to wellness makes it so much easier to ask... what can I do to woo my nature today?

(Also happen to really like Auden!)

Lovely!
