Words to live by

“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 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

Amy!!!!

I have this same quote saved on my computer. HOW KINDRED ARE WE? I love you so much. I'm glad I "caught up" this way w/ you, finally. I can just imagine your sympathy and motivation during Katrina. -I wish I could catch your spark. Anyway, hope school is resolving well and we get to see each other for Amigo Christmas or sometime shortly 'cause actually being with you is of course really best. Your new site is awesome and your writing wonderful. The refridgerator poetry is remarkable!
