Of Metaphysical Origins

A metaphysicist attempts to clarify and explain the nature of being and in turn, the world that encompasses it.
I am not one these people.

“Does she scare you a little? Good. She should make you fear her love, so that when she lets you be apart of it, you won’t take it lightly. She should remind you of the power that beauty brings, that storms reside in her veins, and that she still wants you in the middle of it all. Do not take this soul for granted, for she is fierce, and she can take you places that you never thought you could go; but she is still loving in the midst of it all, like the calm rain after a storm, she can bring life. Learn her, and cherish her, respect her, and love her; for she is so much more than a pretty face, she is a soul on fire.”

Letters on Cezanne

Golden September light, soft warm air, the damp heady smell of leaves in the midday, though fresh first thing these dewy mornings. We’re nearly in October, and a family tradition will soon be no more as life has hit home that nothing is stable, everything is in flux, and that there is no such thing as settling. 

So, with this change in the air, I’ve managed to find my own moment and be transported by Rainer Maria Rilke’s magical Letters on Cezanne, with a glass of Cote du Rhone. We adapt to survive, but maybe I am a slow learner, or my romantic ideals of the world are heavier then I ever even knew, but I obviously have missed the memo or been so protected from the fact that there is no such thing as settling. There is no settling into routine, life is ever changing, stability is what you make for yourself.  I will adapt, I will create my own stability. That is life, riding the waves of change that come your way, a skill of stability. Surfing, is it not?

“Someday you’ll find the right person, and you’ll learn to have a lot more confidence in yourself. That’s what I think. So don’t settle for anything less. In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount.”
