“The artist is always beginning. Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth.”
— Ezra Pound
Everything is a first step towards a greater whole and every moment both a beginning and an ending. Even if we’re well on our way towards a given goal, the next step we take will be the first one on the rest of the way there. This is both reassuring and terrifying for it means no matter how far we’ve come, the journey is always beginning. Each achievement leads to the next one and we can never fully rest on our laurels because we have so far to go.
