What is Ordinary Plots?

Ordinary Plots is an occasional newsletter that meditates on a single poem and reflects on how it is witnessing the world, the self, the soul, so much more.

Oft-discussed: grace, selfhood, wonder, bewilderment, mystery, hope, lack of hope, joy, lack of joy, sorrow, the present, the future, the past, trees, light, more light.
