Some wise friends gave me these words before we left and they resonate with me often.
“I beg you, 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
WHAT WE’RE WATCHING:

>Friday Night Lights, our favorite show from back home. We’ve re-watched the seasons and all the “extra” features, we love it that much.
>Flight of the Concords, a quirky tv show about kiwis living in New York. So much funnier after living here awhile.
