“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.

T.S. Eliot

Courtesy tenaciousR Creative CommonsWe might imagine that we’re covering vast distances as we continue living, seeking, and growing.

Might it be possible that instead of a path from point A to point B, living is more like walking up a spiral staircase? As we go around each time, we encounter tracks of our former selves, we run into our old habits of our younger selves. We continue to be different people, and when we encounter these past shadows, we’re doing so at a higher level than before.

“Not all those who wander are lost”

J.R.R. Tolkien
