Hey, folks.
First time post. Is there a special handshake or ritual I need to perform to post here?

I sought a board like y'alls after reading some poetry by Mary Oliver.
"Have You Ever Tried to Enter the Long Black Branches?"
This poem in particular had a couple of lines that made me think hard about what I am doing.

"Do you think this world was only an entertainment for you?"
"Listen, are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?"
