Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language.
Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything. Live the question now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.” —Rainer Maria Rilke (via icehova)
Arrived at the Petrified Forest; the Painted Desert(s)
Arrived in Holbrook, AZ
Read The Gold At The Starbow’s End by Frederick Pohl (Read this..seriously..so good)
Was invaded by ideas and essences contained in both the vast and beautiful wilderness of Arizona and the vast and beautiful contents of Mr. Pohl’s novella.
Felt the precise and unique fullness of mind/body/soul that comes along with continuing success on the Road and companionship of the best kind.
It’s been a good day.
It couldn’t have been any better, quite honestly.
A full day hiking and discovering things neither one of us could have imagined.
And then a gorgeous drive down a long desert road right into the sunset.
Plus, the man that owns the hotel we’re staying at is the nicest person we have ever met in forever. Such a sweetheart.
And the breakfast here includes scrambled eggs, sausages, and waffles.
