And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. — T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding

Poem

She departed without explanation;
I had thought that she’d gone on vacation,
But she went to survey
Unknown lands far away.
Her excursion’s main aim: exploration. — SheilaB, Exploration
