Home is a Window Seat: Chile
The only thing that’s asked of us.
Hello! And welcome to Dandelion Seeds, an illustrated newsletter that is hand-painted and hand-lettered, from my desk to yours.
A few weeks ago, I shared a quote from one of my favorite poets, Rainer Maria Rilke, about living the questions now. As I put the finishing touches on this penultimate installment of “Home is a Window Seat,” another beloved line of his came back to me:
“Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.”
This chapter is all about those seasons of Big Life Change, and how sometimes, we need big landscapes to make sense of it all. If there are big changes you’re navigating right now, I hope that Rilke’s wisdom — and the view from this week’s window seat — will help you know you’re not alone on your journey.
