"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

Calm.

Branchard, Winter, 1928


When what is near you is far, then your distance is already among the stars and very large; rejoice in your growth, in which you naturally can take no one with you, and be kind to those who remain behind, and be sure and calm before them and do not torment them with your doubts and do not frighten them with your confidence or joy, which they could not understand.

Rainer Maria Rilke
