a long way to go...

I tell you that I have a long way to go before I am—where one begins….
You are so young, so before all beginning, and I want to beg you, as much as I can, to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questionsthemselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
Resolve to be always beginning—to be a beginner

 this poem was recited at our wedding over 13 years ago...and i find myself coming back to it again and again...for true words are wonderful to find...and my work resonates with this mantra...gotta love Rilke's Letters on Love...  
all work shown herein will be available for purchase in my wee shop within the next 2 days
how you doing over there in your neck of the wonderful woods?
i hope summer is treating  you most kindly...
