So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

rilke says...

If your everyday life seems poor, don't blame it; blame yourself.
Admit to yourself that you are not enough of a poet to call forth its riches; because for the creator there is no poverty and no indifferent place.

-rainer maria rilke

I like this idea. Please don't think I'm joking when I say the following:

One of my favorites quotes ever was said by by Danny Bonaduche on the TODAY show about a year ago. He said, "If your life sucks, it's because you suck."

I totally believe that's true. He must have been channeling Rilke

danny bonaduce, rilke, what's the difference?

two noteworthy german poets, sources of inspiration for us all.
