A poem about love, life, and new growth

Cozy Grammar with Marie and Thomas

Each month I like to share a poem that has something to say about the art of living.

This verse comes from my new translation of the classical Tamil masterpiece on ethics, power, and love, THE KURAL: Tiruvalluvar's Tirukkural, published in January by the venerable Beacon Press in Boston.

It's a beautiful poem on living with love.

Take a listen!

The Secret Life of Nouns and Verbs

Earlier this month I taught a live class for everyone who is currently using Cozy Grammar’s Complete Curriculum. The class was called The Secret Life of Nouns and Verbs, or how to get started joyfully with grammar.

Sound interesting? We made a recording! The video is now part of the Ask Cozy Grammar library, included as a bonus with our Complete Curriculum. If you sign up, you can watch it anytime you'd like.

Take a peek and see whether our curriculum might be of service to you.
