How to Discover the World

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,

very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.

– Wendell Berry

– J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Wandering
