The center is nowhere, the center is everywhere

As I wrap up the manuscript for Walking Zero (or whatever we end up calling it), I am wondering if the book needs an epigraph. If I give it one, perhaps it should be the following words from Scott Russell Sander's Staying Put: Making a Home in a Restless World.

There are no privileged locations. If you stay put, your place may become a holy center, not because to gives you special access to the divine, but because in your stillness you hear what might be heard anywhere. All there is to see can be seen from anywhere in the universe, if you know how to look.
