The Secret Gardener

Just as language has no longer anything in common with the thing it names, so the movements of most of the people who live in cities have lost their connexion with the earth; they hang, as it were, in the air, hover in all directions, and find no place where they can settle.

Rainer Maria Rilke  (1875 –  1926)

  1. Amazing that Rilke said this in his lifetime. . . Even more so applicable now that we’ve got our eyes and hands fixed on computers and gadgets. Every bit as sad. Thanks for this post, S.G..
