AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

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

Grasped.


A WALK

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far beyond the road I have begun,
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has an inner light, even from a distance-

and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave …
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

Rainer Maria Rilke
