Today though, I woke up looking at the freshly fallen snow outside my apartment window.... Hours later, it's still melting away... Spring will come, someday...
Many of my friends are also at their own crossroads. You are tying your lives together with nuptials, or starting fresh and whole by yourselves, or even delivering sweet new little lives to the earth. Know that all the stuggles you may encounter are all worthwhile. Summer is coming.
Rilke's letters are part of my camino, and I feel this excerpt is often appropriate when facing the wind at the Alto de Perdon, or trudging in the mud, or just embracing the next great adventure: "...it is clear that we must trust in what is difficult; everything alive trusts in it, everything in Nature grows and defends itself any way it can and is spontaneously itself, tries to be itself at all costs and against all opposition. We know little, but that we must trust in what is difficult is a certainty that will never abandon us"
Congratulations to you all in the crossroads, I wish I was everywhere at once so I could share the moments with you. Know I'm thinking of you.
