I explored in the cause of understanding; a search which took me far from what was familiar and comfortable, and led me into doubt.

I chose the difficult way. A confronting, unusual language affected and shaped and changed by a struggle at the frontiers of wild darkness, of assumed knowledge, of blurred boundaries – just as I was affected, shaped and changed by the insights I brought back with me.

And yet there came a time when I realized that I already possessed what I had been searching for. I'd had it all along.

I have someone there, I have someone to love, I've got people waiting for me; I have a reason. A reason to keep going, a reason to go back.

Now, I need all the strength you can give me, for I'm on my way home. I journey on to light of day. I journey on, but now I know: I do not journey alone.
