Return to Reality

Many of us leave home convinced we are going to conquer the world. We are anxious to shuck off the restraints of family and tradition, to cut our own swath and make our own rules. We know we can do it better, make it faster and see it all.

Somewhere along the way we learn we didn't know quite as much as we thought. Our ideas weren't as new as we took them to be. Suddenly the "quaint" homespun wisdom that once we rejected takes on new form. The first trip home after such awakening is a return to reality
