Leigh sent me this quote from Rainer Maria Rilke, and I wanted to copy it here to remind me, for a little while at least, that the questions are okay.

"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked doors or books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to 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."
