T.S. Elliott once wisely said, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”  Last week, as I wriggled back into “normalcy” after our wondrous adventures in Costa Rica, I find that I’ve a whole new appreciation […]
