Messes

The ability to live

with seeming contradictions,

and the ambivalence and tension

these contradictions create,

is what gives rise to 

wisdom.

The messes

are the point.  

Yearnings, Rabbi Irwin Kula

All questions,

cannot or maybe should not

be answered.

All conflicts,

personal or communal

may not be resolved

to our satisfaction.

Sometimes

we must accept

that certain things

are unknowable,

and so we must live with

the resulting questions.

To do so

can sometimes

enlarge

the scope of

What is possible.
