What do you do when you don’t know the answer?
You live the questions, right? Here’s a brief post in honor of poet Rilke’s 136th birthday. Rilke was born in Prague on December 4, 1875. His quotation informs and inspires me and helped me to envision a blog that reflects a life where I live the questions in poses & prose:
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.
It’ll be a full December moon on Saturday, December 10. This is production week for The Nutcracker. The holiday swirl is upon us. So, I’m gathering that energy alongside my thoughts. Please look for another post from me around the Solstice. Namaste, Rxo
