Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

“All That is Gold Does Not Glitter”, J.R.R. Tolkien’s poem from The Lord of the Rings, has one line in particular that homes in on that nomadic spirit in me; “Not all those who wander are lost”. I’m not lost, just like to wander this great world of ours. Here is the whole poem:

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
