all who wander are not lost
Sometimes you feel like a sign post - going in all directions and in a language that no one understands. My advice is pick a direction.
My daughter Hannah gave me a t-shirt which reads "All who wander are not lost." I like the shirt and I follow the advice when I can. Then again as Shakespeare observed in King Lear, a little vision can make life simpler and less tragic.
This last week has been my random wandering though England and Wales. I have been searching for my roots, knowing that my forebearers came from the Cotswolds, Wales and the Midwest of England. I may not have found anything new about them, but at least I enjoyed the journey.
