Grace Paley

Grace Paley
(1922 - 2007)

She was describing herself as a somewhat combative pacifist and cooperative anarchist.

...(if) you have a habit of looking at each day as a whole day -- unless you drop dead at noon or something -- then every day you live something interesting. It's interesting because you either meet a new tree or if you're in the city, you meet a new person. Or something happens. The sun shifts on the mountain -- very beautiful things happen (Grace Paley in an interview from 1998).

I will post right now a poem by her and you'll realize her large poetic breath.
