Golding, sailing past the island of Ithaka, thought he would return and land within a few months. Then war and life intervened, and it took him more than a quarter of a century. Which goes to show, hang on to your dreams long enough and they can come true. Or, more simply, never too late.
In three months, at most, I will be in Ithaca. It took me a good deal longer than that. Thirty years in fact; all but four.
