Thou thyself art the answer, TSE. As you said in 'East Coker': 

In order to arrive at what you do not know
    You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
    You must go by the way of dispossession.

Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.
                                   But to what purpose
Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves
I do not know."

I like the picture but what is the train doing on the skirt in 1939?
(Besides gathering dirt.)
