The most important questions don’t seem to have ready answers.
But the questions themselves have a healing power when they are shared.
An answer is an invitation to stop thinking about something, to stop wondering.
Life has no such stopping places, life is a process whose
every event is connected to the moment that just went by.
An unanswered question is a fine traveling companion.
It sharpens your eye for the road.
