I imagine very few of you will actually go back this far into the archives. But if you do, thanks.
This blog was actually started as a website, over three years ago, which I’ve since let lapse. I’ll be continuing my random musings here with a focus on travel and adventure, and the insights they inspire.
The quote at the top of the page comes from a longer paragraph in Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke. It’s been an inspiration to me for a long time, helping me to be at peace with where and who I am, while at the same time learning and growing.
“…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.”
