This Place, These People: book
I had lived with the idea of change, had seen it as a constant, had seen a world in flux, had seen human life as a series of cycles that sometimes run together.
Land is not land alone, something that simply is itself. Land partakes of what we breathe into it, is touched by our moods and memories.
—V.S.. Naipaul, The Enigma of Arrival
. . . for the past is never closed down and receives the meaning we give it by our subsequent acts.
