THE JOURNEY TO THE EAST, HERMAN HESSE

We not only wandered through Space, but also through Time.  We moved towards the East, but we also traveled into the Middle Ages and the Golden Age; we roamed through Italy or Switzerland, but at times we also spent the night in the 10th century and dwelt with the patriarchs or the fairies.  During the times I remained alone, I often found again places and people of my own past………..  For our goal was not only the East, or rather the East was not only a country and something geographical, but it was the home and youth of the soul, it was everywhere and nowhere, it was the union of all times.
