“Embrace your solitude and love it. Endure the pain it causes, and try to sing without it. For those near you are distant, you say. That shows it is beginning to dawn around you; there is an expanse opening about you. And when your nearness becomes distant, then you have already expanded far: to be among the stars. Your horizon has widened greatly.
Rejoice in your growth. No one can join you in that.” – Letters to a young poet, Rainer Maria Rilke.
Hands down, one of my favourite pictures of the trip.
