    You Are There by Erica Jong

    You are there.  You have always been there.  Even when you thought you were climbing you had already arrived.  Even when you were breathing hard, you were at rest.  Even then it was clear you were there.  Not in our nature to know what is journey and what arrival.  Even if we knew we would not admit.  Even if we lived we would think we were just germinating.  To live is to be uncertain.  Certainty comes at the end.
