Reflection on the land, nature and the spiritual notion of wandering

Wanderer

Nomad

Tourist

Walkabout

Gypsy

Expat

Migrant

We all wander

restless exploration of the land

of ourselves

Wander on the earth

wander in our dreams

There is a museum for nomads

In Ethiopia

The nomadic tribes of east Africa

The Maasai

piecemeal adventurer preparing to jump laike a Massai

piecemeal adventurer preparing to jump like a Massai

The Mursi

Mursi women

Mursi women

The nomadic pastoralists of Southern Sudan

The Australian Aboriginal walkabout

Wandering for Centuries

And we still wander

Me motorised

On my bike

Over centuries we have signposted

Aids to the wanderer

Food

water

shelter

Modern sign post for wanderers

Modern sign post for wanderers

Ancient signpost to water and food (kangaroo)

Ancient signpost to water and food (kangaroo)

So the wanderers continue to wander

over the globe

and wanders take different shapes

different scales

different complications

in the modern world

but the wandering is in its essence the same
