Hi Harold,
 
~
     a haiku reply,
     to mere haiku's hint:
     ahh, delicious recursion !
~
 
My riff on your words now appears in the opening paragraph of a story-in-progress:
 
"We clung to the idea we 'had' a relationship the way shipwreck-survivors cling to floating debris, denying that we had reached the staleness of that inner-circle of hell where every possible question was ... endlessly ... asked ... and answered. Taking turns pretending to find novelty in each other out of sheer habit, each of us, seeing through the other's mask: the boredom of numb eyes."
 
thanks, Bill
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms, and like books that are now 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 is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
