wandering wonderers

I was going through my site and making more changes when I noticed that I used “Not all who wonder are lost” as the tagline of the page. I immediately went to change it, but then thought better of it, for the moment at least.

I know it is grammatically incorrect as that is not the correct quote from J.R.R. Tolkein. That isn’t what he meant by it. In my life, I’ve gone through many, many ups and downs and constantly second guessing my many, many interests. I’ve always been imaginative, creative, and constantly wondering.

I don’t think it is by accident that I made this mistake. Just because you wonder and dream about things that may at this moment seem impossible, it doesn’t mean you are lost. It means that you are exploring and curious and that is awesome.

For reference here is dictionary.com‘s definition:

Wonderverb (used without object)

1. to think or speculate curiously: to wonder about the origin of the solar system.
2.to be filled with admiration, amazement, or awe; marvel (often followed by at): He wondered at her composure in such a crisis.
Honestly, if you look at the definition of “wander” I like the previous word (wonder) even more.

Keep wondering wanderers!
