Home is where one starts from.
      As we grow older
The world becomes stranger,
     the pattern more complicated
Of dead and living. Not the
     intense moment
Isolated, with no before and after,
But a lifetime
     burning in every moment
And not the lifetime
     of one man only
but of old stones
     that cannot be deciphered.

-- Thomas Stearns Eliot, Four Quartets, East, Coker, V
