Not all those who wander are lost | Chasing Men Who Stare at Arrays

Not all those who wander are lost

Good day, Everyone.

It’s the count-down….  Tick, tick, tick….

Ten days left in the semester, then I’m free from school for the summer!  Once finished, I’ll only have to worry about paid work and, the films.

I’m procrastinating and relaxing before tackling the inevitable Variances. As in Sales Quantity, Market Share, Market Volume: those guys. And I decided to drop you a quick note.

At the same time, I’m thinking about another project.  You see, it’s tackling smaller scale creative works that keeps me sane while chasing Leviathan.  You won’t get to see most of them because they are private things, but in this case Artist Tazeen Qayyum asked for a story. A woman’s story.  About womanly things… and maybe a man, we’ll see.  In any case, my tiny contribution will become part of something bigger, that the public gets to see in June.  I think this is pretty cool.

Tazeen’s project and her work lead my thoughts to this journey we’re taking together.  Because your support comes, sometimes, in completely unexpected ways and often from far away.  It’s the tiniest of gestures, like a wink in Twitter, that make me feel inspired to share what’s on my mind.  And right now, I’m thinking about Tolkien.

Here is a poem for you to ponder right along with me.

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.

All that is gold does not glitter, Tolkien, J. R. R. (1954),
The Fellowship of the Ring & The Lord of the Rings.

  • Catherine,
    How exciting for you!! If you feel comfortable, I would really love to see your story once finished. Sounds like you are doing great things, perhaps Toronto is a creative catalyst, again, something I am considering, even if just for a visit at first.

    Best of luck with the story, and I sincerely would like to read the finished product,

    Best, Susan

  • Dear Susan,

    I’ll keep you posted!

  • Catherine, I ponder along with you – wandering to learn, deep roots to stay grounded. You are an inspiration
