“Ah, not to be cut off,
not through the slightest partition
shut out from the law of the stars.
The inner – what is it?
if not intensified sky,
hurled through with birds and deep
with the winds of homecoming.
-Rainer Maria Rilke, “[Ah, Not to be Cut Off]”-

That is my artist statement. Life statement too. Thank you.
“Like” – always, Rilke. Constant resonance, in my brain and prediction of what will be/was/is in my heart.
Rilke, one of my favorite poets. Lovely poetic photo.
