One of my favorite poets, T. S. Eliot wrote a wonderful line in his poem Little Gidding that I just love:
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
This could well be one of the themes of my life. I am constantly coming back to what I've done before, revisiting it, seeing it with new eyes, and finding it much more worthy of my attention than at first I thought. This goes for places, people, art forms, and everything else I can think of.
Gotta love Eliot.
