Cassondra Puls enjoys languages, sociology, linguistics, origami cranes, Western philosophy, travel, swingsets, paintings by Matisse and Chagall, political debates, children, international travel, volleyball, memorizing poetry, the way sunlight looks filtered through green leaves, running, hiking, early childhood education, Thai food, existentialism, stars, coloring with cray-pas and mixed media, philosophical novels, and walking in streetlight-illuminated nighttime roads while snow falls.

I am using this blog to post about language, personal reflections, etymologies, drawings and artwork, travelogues and/or photos, depending on where life has taken me. If you see something that resonates with you, or even if you don’t, do not hesitate to leave a sign of your existence in the comments thread. I appreciate the validation as much as the next blogger/human being.

The (former) Tagline

“Living the questions” is an excerpt from Rainer Maria Rilke’s “Letters to a Young Poet”:

…and I want to beg you, as much as I can, dear sir, to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point it, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then, gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
