July 9, 2008: Eliot and exploring - 0 Comments

"Old men ought to be explorers
Here and there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion
Through the dark cold and empty desolation,
The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast waters
Of the petrel and the porpoise. In the end is my beginning."

- T.S. Eliot, East Coker (Four Quartets), 1943
