Live the questions

by tamarjacobson

Quote of the day:

I beg you… to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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 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 [From CCIE]

Feeling the feelings. 

Already missing our humble abode, little rented apartment nestled amongst the Wissahickon woods. The large old oak that stands solid and firm against all odds outside out living room window – home to birds, squirrels, raccoons – how I will miss this great old tree. For it has given me great comfort through many a lonely moment when we first moved here almost six years ago.

Excited about moving into the new house next month. So excited. Something new and beautiful. A new commitment, a new stage in my relationship with life partner. A new era. Excited, deserving, anxious. Different feelings converging one on top of the other … tumbling and swirling back and forth between them.

As I write this, I glance over at Ada curled up near me, and think about her reaction to the move. Little gentle soul. I wish I could let her know what is coming. I feel great love for my little furry friend. My dear, dear friend, who has accompanied me through many a sad and lonely hour these past six years. Unconditionally loving me throughout. How grateful I am for her.
