  1. EXILE

    is closely experienced
    as discomfort
    of a separated mind
    a wish for home..
    a feeling of restriction
    a curtailment of freedom
    which is lifted
    with momentary arrivings
    but reinstated as shadow
    as exile resumes..
    exile is "quiet desperation" *
    an expression of
    dissatisfaction of the present
    and continued searching 
    for echoes of happiness...

    *Henry David Thoreau

    Voyagers discover that the world can never be larger than the person that is in the world; but it is impossible to foresee this, it is impossible to be warned. 
    James Baldwin (1924-1987) African-American writer.
