AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Invest.


Forget, forget, and let us live now 
only this, how the stars pierce through 
cleared nocturnal sky; how the moon’s whole disk 
surmounts the gardens. We’ve sensed so long already 
how the darkness breeds many mirrors: how a gleam 
takes shape, a white shadow in the radiance 
of night. But now let us cross over 
and invest this world where 
everything is lunar --

Rainer Maria Rilke
