“Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.”

In our “purpose driven” culture, it is sometimes hard to remember, as Tolkein’s words tell us, that wandering can often be the best part of any journey.  Interesting too, if we think of our life as a journey, that the word wander and wonder are only a letter of a difference!   What better way to boost our little ones sense of wonder than to immerse them in the beauty of a great story, or…..to let them wander a little when we go for a walk without worrying about where we are going or when we will get there.

Of course, speaking as someone who is extremely geographically challenged, and who has ended up living in a land where I am surrounded by people who have been born with a compass in their mouths, it is really no surprise that the notion of WANDERING resonates so deeply with me!
