From time to time, I come across a quote that make me pause, feel into a topic in a way that I hadn't before, or maybe could help each of us to restore a measure of grounding. Some things that will be included in this section of my website will be written by others, some may be my own musings.
"The point of marriage is not to create a quick commonality by tearing down all boundaries; on the contrary, a good marriage is one in which each partner appoints the other to be the guardian of his solitude, and thus they show each other the greatest possible trust. a merging of two people is an impossibility, and where it seems to exist, it is a hemming-in, a mutual consent that robs one party or both parties of their fullest freedom and development. But once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist. a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky."
-Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
