To have unanswered questions is to be alive!

"I would like to beg you, dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to 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 questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer." -Rainer Maria Rilke in "Letter to a Young Poet"

To have unanswered questions is to be alive!
I breathe in curiosity, I breathe out inquiries.
Each one unfolds as a flower blooming: slowly
With grace, beautiful to watch at every moment
So that each spring I have a garden where I lay,

Thankful for purpose:  another answer to seek.
