The journey never ends, just the experiences and the events that mark milestones. But these might be eclipsed by another sojourner, so who's to say "you're wrong" when in fact, you, yourself, are constantly "just coming around the bend?"
I enjoyed this observation. It always looks "new". But is it? Many people seek new experiences all the time, just so that they can satisfy there craving for something new, but really if they get to experience something new, it brings them that "same old feeling" of newness that they had yesterday. That isn't new, it's a repeat.
