Living the Questions

This has been up on the wall in front of my desk for quite some time, serving as a constant inspiration. It's fascinating how much commonality and connection emerges from what first may have seemed to be a happenstance crossing of paths, but now seems to be anything but. From Rainer Maria Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet:
“…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.”
And sometimes, one even arrives...
