one of my favorite walks to reflect on (2007)

"...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."

by: Rainer Maria Rilke
