At some point in life, after walking many miles and surviving many adventures, it may happen that your journey takes you to the point Zero. Not that what happened before becomes insignificant, it doesn’t, but in a way it does not hold the same value as before. The main value it has is that it brought you to this point and now is the time to begin, as if for the first time.
I used to think that coming to the point zero was a rare occasion, one that happens once or twice in a lifetime. But I have come to realise that it may happen again and again, many times. It is like one of the seasons happening at certain points in ones life.
