Today’s Quote

How surely gravity’s law,
strong as an ocean current,
takes hold of even the smallest thing
and pulls it toward the heart of the world…
This is what the things can teach us:
to fall,
patiently to trust our heaviness.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

    • Tim: Thank you for stopping by. I find that I enjoy Rilke, Rumi & Kahlil Gibran when I take the time for poetry (which is not enough). Existential and mystical… Rodin is also a favorite; I’ve seen his work in Philadelphia. Good taste!!!
