If you fall upon this page, I wish to exemplify my thoughts as an iNaturalist with a few simple quotes:

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
—T.S. Eliot, from “Little Gidding,” Four Quartets

And ending on a quick note with a different version of Ralph Waldo Emerson's well acknowledged quote "Life is a journey, not a destination," (which I admire equally as well) by a tennis player named Arthur Ashe
“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”
So to all, "please enjoy the doing & have some fun along the way!"
