It is sweeter to wander with the wretched and outcasts than to sit crowned with roses at the banquets of the rich

Of Other Places...

"In civilisations without boats, dreams dry up, spying takes the place of adventure, and the police take the place of pirates"

The sight of a boat always breaks the heart of the exiled, The Ruinist, or you - in that s/he longs for the passage home, or to a place that s/he imagines is 'Home'. With longing, through tears, in daydreams over coffee in far away places - this 'home' exists...

If we can say that home is where the heart is, then we can be at home anywhere - for the heart is always beautiful wherever the world seems ugly.
