TS Eliot

"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"

A friend in Dublin (see: forthefainthearted) reminded me of these famous lines from "Little Gidding" so 'herself' has now packed the poetry book - along with a mountain of other reading material - to take on holiday. Will she read half of them...not if I have any say in the matter. We aren't going to the Mournes to stay indoors! Mountains! Seaside! Forest Parks!

Exploring is my forte. So, sometime today...when the packing is completed...we're off. And, as TS quoted at the end of Little Gidding:

And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well...

Maybe we should take the book on Julian of Norwich as well...
