as usual today, just a little sadder.
It is four years since my dad died unexpectedly.
I miss him.




Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves ...
Don't search for the answers,
which could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps then, someday far in the future,
you will gradually, without even noticing it,
live your way into the answer.

I always thought you looked like your mom. Maybe the gorgeous red hair that you share with her was all I was really looking at. Seeing the picture of your dad, young and sans moustache, I suddenly noticed how much you look like him. Your eyes, your cheekbones, your jaw... I can't believe I never saw that before. That's it. Random observation.
