The Dance of the Cranes

Once ago I had thought this journey of individuation would have led forward in a straight line, but the Dance of the Cranes which Ariadne performed for Theseus teaches us that the journey toward the self is a spiral pattern which turns and returns, leading us forward and back again at the very same time; this circular motion--like the mythic snake biting its tail--is bent by an inner strain and colors the age of my days.
