2013 Day Two

Today, I received this great card from a friend.  I was planning to share it with you – had taken a picture and was going to post it on Facebook.  I love the birds and the quote and the person who sent it is very special. The quote on the card is  “And now let us welcome the new year,full of things that have never been.”   But before I got it posted, I picked up one of my favorite books to read the entry for January 2nd.  And the author quoted the very same German poet – Rainer Maria Rilka who said  “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.”  Hmmm… I thought.  Love the questions!  No problem.  Rilka went on to say “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…”  

May there always be questions!






The book – Sarah Ban Breathnach’s SIMPLE ABUNDANCE.  The card – Saturn Press.
