Foreign lands never yield their secrets to a traveller. The best they offer are tantalising snippets, just enough to inflame the imagination. The secrets they do reveal are your own - the ones you have kept from yourself. And this is reason enough to travel, to leave home.

an-itinerant-poet:

“For we live with those retrievals from childhood that coalesce and echo throughout our lives, the way shattered pieces of glass in a kaleidoscope reappear in new forms and are songlike in their refrains and rhymes, making up a single monologue. We live permanently in the recurrence of our own stories, whatever story we tell.”

Michael Ondaatje, from Divisadero (Alfred A. Knopf, 2007)

I feel more fellowship with the defeated than with saints. Heroism and sanctity don’t appeal to me, I imagine. What interests me is being a man.

And they say the right question
is far more difficult to get to than the right answer. It sounds good,
anyway, in the way other people’s lives are a form of distance, something
you can look at, like landscape, until your own starts to look that way
as well.

John Gallagher, from “In a Landscape: I,” Poetry (June 2014)

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.
