Mary Oliver's Landscape: A NY Times treat

If you visit this link to the New York Times you will find a lovely treat, a Fourth of July gift (though it doesn't really have anything to do with Independence Day traditionally understood).

There's an article from the Travel section (presumably in tomorrow's paper) about Mary Oliver's stomping grounds around Provincetown, and there's an audio slide show of images of places she frequents in her poems, accompanied by her reading of two such poems: "At Blackwater Pond" and "The Sun".

I haven't read the article yet. I went straight for the dessert of the audio slide show! Enjoy them both, in whatever sequence you take them in.

And Happy 4th of July!
