There were times we regretted...

Eliot wrote:

All this was a long time ago, I
remember,
And I would do it again, but set down
This set down
This: were we led all that way for
Birth or Death? There was a Birth,
certainly,
We had evidence and no doubt. I had
seen birth and death,
But had thought they were different;
this Birth was Hard and bitter agony for us, like
Death, our death.
We returned to our places, these
Kingdoms,
But no longer at ease here, in the old
dispensation,
With an alien people clutching their
gods.
I should be glad of another death.
(T. S. Eliot, from "Journey of the Magi")

I am home, but I left home to get here, and I suppose I will not rest until home is here or I am there.

I miss you, too. I hope there becomes home quickly or you come home again. Regardless, I wish you
Peace,
