Jan Karon is done being on the road with Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good. Excerpt from Mary Oliver's book coming out next month: Blue Horses
In this book there are many hummingbirds— the blue-throated, the bumblebee, the calliope, the cinnamon, the Lucifer, and of course the ruby-throated. Imagine! Well, that’s all you can do. For they’re swift as the wind and they fly, not across the pages but, like many shy and other-wordly things, between them. I know you’ll keep looking now that I’ve told you. I’m hungry to see them too, but I can’t hold them back even for a moment, they’re busy, as all things are, with their own lives. So all I can do is let you know they’re here somewhere. All I can do is tell you by putting my own hunger on the page.
