In crossculture. People watching. Community in the two-thirds world and other places. About questions too: "Higher up and further in!" with an outreach twist? How?

Maria Rainier Rilke’s ‘Letters to a Young Poet’.

The young man, who was trying to be a writer, longed to know whether or not he had talent.  This was the reply given him. “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves…Do not seek the answers which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them.  And the point is to live everything.  Live the questions now.  Perhaps then you will gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”  -Maria Rainer Rilke in ‘Letters to a Young Poet

Now there’s some writing wisdom!
