“you will know it by its seriousness”

I’ve had this line of Rilke’s on a loop in my head, “Nearby is a country they call life, you will know it by its seriousness.”

I’m trying to hold space for both things. Life is very serious and also incredibly silly.

This is heavy but it is also light.

I want this but also already have this.

Meaningful and meaningless.

Both things, all at once.
