Maya Stein is a writer I rely on to help me understand how to live in this world with sensitivity, artistry, and grace. Her observations on living, from a poet’s point of view, are always illuminating. Maya has taught me and so many writers to pay attention to the smallest things; the peach hanging from the tree, the trash dredged up from the lake, the conversation overheard at the filling station. Nothing is lost – everything is used – nothing is wasted, the instruction is everywhere.
