Ulm, Germany

Daily, Travel

The weather started to get better this week. My friend and I spent a sunny (but cold) afternoon at the Tiergarten in Ulm today. It had been almost one year since I was last there, but merely two weeks since I last visited a zoo.

Speaking of animals, and nature… two days ago I read the following in a book by Rilke the poet:

If you hold to Nature, to the simplicity that is in her, to the small detail that scarcely one man sees, which can so unexpectedly grow into something great and boundless; if you have this love for insignificant things and seek, simply as one who serves, to win the confidence of what seems to be poor; then everything will become easier for you, more coherent and somehow more conciliatory, not perhaps in the understanding, which lags wondering behind, but in your innermost consciousness, wake-fulness, and knowing.

That is all there is to be said.
