A little loop of synchronicity as I skimmed through blog posts all the way back to the beginning, surprised to find that I’d started where I find myself again right now: reading Time Space and Knowledge.

When I began this blog, I was at Exercise 17, while I’m almost to 14 now, working my way through. I was thinking of commenting on some of the readings in a more disciplined, systematic way, then linking to these comments in discussions, but I’m wondering if I want to share this blog with more people I know. Should I take this little coincidence as a sign, or write it off since there are three exercises between, making it not a perfect signal? 😉

“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.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.

—T.S. Eliot, from “Little Gidding,” Four Quartets (Gardners Books; Main edition, April 30, 2001) Originally published 1943.”
