Bees

"Everywhere transience is plunging into the depths of Being… It is our task
to imprint this temporary, perishable earth into ourselves so deeply, so
painfully and passionately, that its essence can rise again, invisible, inside
us. We are the bees of the invisible. We wildly collect the honey of the
invisible, to store it in the great golden hive of the invisible."


- Rainer Maria Rilke, from a letter to Halewicz, Duinio Elegies,
from Letters on Life.
