You are so young, so much before all beginning, and I would like to beg you, dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to 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, letters to a young poet, letter #4
What I've learned during my mini-blog vacation:
It is okay to take vacation.
Blogging is more than just blogging.
A lot happens in a short time.
I always come back.
What I am glad to finally be accepting as gospel truth:
Self-expression isn't narcissistic. Self-expression can be a/the way to learn to relate with ourselves, and to extend that relating outwardly to others, which fosters more meaningful, deeper and fresher ways of interacting and engaging!
It is cool to blog.
I am taking my finish lines seriously.
What I am glad I am finally feeling in my bones:
Life is short.
Leaping into the void is a given.
I am not alone.
What makes my heart full:
People who live the question...and take the time to tell me about it.
