Here, where I am surrounded by an enormous landscape, which the winds move across as they come from the seas, here I feel that there is no one anywhere who can answer for you those questions and feelings which, in their depths, have a life of their own; for even the most articulate people are unable to help, since what words point to is so very delicate, is almost unsayable. But even so, I think that you will not have to remain without a solution if you trust in Things that are like the ones my eyes are now resting upon. If you trust in Nature…

 - Rainer Maria Rilke, ‘Letters To A Young Poet”

(and the link to the entire letter http://www.carrothers.com/rilke4.htm, for those of you who, like me, face decisions that may be scary, a future that is so uncertain, and the perhaps mistaken belief that there is a ‘right choice’ and a ‘wrong’ one.)

Happy Birthday to me!

21! Well no, that was a pretty long time ago but I decided this year that I’m turning 21 again.

I know I’ve seen this movie but cannot remember a thing about it…which happens to me often with movies.  I could conclude that my memory is going, but I am going to choose to believe that it is because I watch so many I get a lot of them mixed up ;-)
