“There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions. You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light.”
~ Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams
Lopez has an incredible ability for observation, and then sharing those observations and insights through his writing. Listen here to one of Mr. Lopez’s interviews, about a 2004 book release that may be as relevant, or even more relevant, now.
This ‘living into the pressing questions’ has a relieving wisdom in our time of instant-gratification and epic impatient distraction. Though we may be impatient, Life unfolds in its own time, and pace, like it or not.
“Living into the question” brings Rilke to mind for me, too, with Rilke’s musing on “to whom we turn” while navigating the Question Trail.
