Jane Hirshfield It was wonderful to talk to poet Jane Hirshfield about the artist’s life for Tricycle Magazine. Hirshfield is a rare phenomenon, a world-class writer as dedicated to spiritual awakening as she is to the beauty of language.  Her two new books, “The Beauty” and “Ten Windows: How Great Poems Transform the World,” are not to be missed. As Hirshfield says in the piece, “Art isn’t a superficial addition to our lives; it’s as necessary as oxygen.”  http://www.tricycle.com/blog/felt-its-fullness
