All the questions

Wow. So, here I am again...feeling a little bit lost in the silence of this time in my life. It's not bad. It's just quiet and a little unsettling if I think about it for too long. The questions are still looming overhead like clouds. I would like to learn to sit back and enjoy them. Mom gave Erik a magnet for Christmas last year. It seems to have been written for me and for today. Funny how that works.

"I beg you... to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. and the point is, to live everything. live the questions now. perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer..."
~Rainer Maria Rilke
