It could have been that I saw her…


“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.


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. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

― Rainer Maria Rilke

Be Still and Move Forward

When I lived in New York City back in the 1990s five words popped into my head one day. The words were: “Be still and move forward. ” Ever since that day I have adopted these words as my mantra.

Also, I wish to share with you the gift of other combinations of words that signpost the road to the light.

I feel closer to what language can’t reach.

Rainer Maria Rilke

We can know the dark, and dream it into a new image.


Are you willing to be sponged out, erased, cancelled, made nothing?

Are you willing to be made nothing? Dipped into oblivion?

If not, you will never know change.

D.H. Lawrence

You must give birth to your images. They are the future waiting to be born… fear not the strangeness you feel.

Rainer Maria Rilke
