Distance not only gives nostalgia, but perspective, and maybe objectivity.
I am the kind of person who does not like to carry baggage. In fact, I don't go back and listen to my own music. I believe in closing chapters and moving forward. That's what gives me peace.

At the same time, you have to conjure the next stepping stone because the stream, we hope, keeps flowing.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
