"When Death Comes" by Mary Oliver

This is a reading of “When Death Comes” by Mary Oliver with a variety of photographs taken recently, including some repeats from the Dorris Ranch slideshow. This is a favorite poem of my friend Taylor Goforth, which she read recently at her sixtieth birthday party.

Technically, I am proud of this because as not the sharpest knife in the drawer, I finally managed to record on Garageband for i-Pad and download it directly to i-Movie for i-Pad. i-Movie is far from full-featured, but for the work I do teaching people how to make digital stories–most often on their i-devices, closing this loop between recording an audio voiceover and being able to drop it into i-Movie BEFORE adding images is very satisfying–a big thank you to i-guru Richard Lennox for the “duh!” moment!

  • Yes! I am a bride, married to amazement. Still working on being a bridegroom taking the world in my arms, for I’m not that generous a man.

    But for sure I don’t want to have been a tourist here, loud and ignorant of local custom, disrespectful while walking the corridors of the ancient temple of the earth, taking pictures to talk about later, complaining about the guides.

    I, too, don’t want to have just visited.

    Thanks, Sandy!

    • This was a beautifully powerful digital story wrapped around a poem that speaks to every living being. Thank you so much for creating it.
