rilke + rodin on the virtues of snow days…

George Evans

…an excerpt of a letter from Rilke to Rodin on the power of time off:

“I have often asked myself whether those days on which we are forced to be indolent are not just the ones we pass in profoundest activity? Whether all our doing, when it comes later, is not only the last reverberation of a great movement which takes place in us on those days of inaction…”

We love the eloquent reasoning for being lazy dogs…and imagining that, were we Rodin, it could lead to this…
