Where’s that quote in the tagline from?

Glad you asked! It’s from the poem “Sometimes” by Mary Oliver, one of my favorite poets. You’re probably familiar with “Wild Geese”, but you should totally check out some of her other poems, like “The Journey”, “Why I Wake Early” and “The Summer Day”.


Why are you writing this blog?

To get regular, non-scary writing practice, essentially. If you’re interested in reading it, all the better!


Why attentionary?

I had this idea that I’d probably have a substantially better life if I were a little better at paying attention. So this blog is pretty much about paying attention to what I do and how I do it. Also, the URL was available.
