Lines from Little Gidding by TS Eliot [4 Quartets]

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.

For me these words are so incredibly resonant with meaning, how often I visit and revisit certain places, here in Ireland mostly, places that are significant with meaning, each visit brings new ideas and feelings and experiences and emotions to the fore.
