  1. This is so beautiful. Thank you Toko-pa.
    Exiled since the brith, indeed.

  2. But. It seems we do this over and over again. Perhaps we cannot keep our attention focused on home with all the uncertainty we have about our acceptance of that Path that leads us there

  3. It seems sometimes that to head home one has to brave “exile”….Snowden?

  4. The Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell – we have to leave, only to return home knowing it for the first time. Wordsworth’s “a sleeping and forgetting.” Thankful for David Whyte’s talent and beauty…
