At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.
-T.S. Eliot, from Four Quartets, Burnt Norton
I went to college and thought hard about literature for four years, and now I find I’ve developed a nasty addiction (it doesn’t matter to which one). So welcome to my still point where the dance is – my dusty academic shuffle through books into a growing knowledge of just how beautiful this world God made is.
