I changed the title of my blog after encountering a poem that so very much resonates at a deep level with my past and continuing journey. The Poem is by Rainer Maria Rilke, whose deep and profound poetic ideas I have come to love and appreciate. Indeed the poem below is my favorite and the one to which I connect, and from which this blog is titled.

I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?
