What Is Necessary After All …

On a day when things haven’t gone quite right … and the world seems to be spinning a bit out of control and I’m not hanging on too well …

… it’s nice to sit in my studio, safe and dry, watching the thunderstorm unfold outside.

And, I haven’t shared a blessing or a poem on this page in a long, long while. And, so here you go. This is from Rainer Maria Rilke, an early 20th century German poet. His poem for you today:

What is necessary, after all,
Is only this: solitude.
Vast inner solitude.
To walk inside yourself
and meet no one for hours —
that is what you must be able to attain.

Enjoy the quiet, peaceful place that is inside you. Ahh, paradise!
