A Poet Reflects

“It is a curious emotion, this certain homesickness I have in mind … It is no simple longing for the home town  or country of our birth. The emotion is Janus-faced: we are torn  between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and  strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have  never known.”
—Carson McCullers
