Travel in country or in mind, does it matter? Jot down what you see and what you don’t . Fill in the empty places with possibilities . Take for muse an imaginary world if ever there was one, undertake the deep play of the wanderer , the philosopher , the artist within us all. Amuse yourself make-believing your own imagined place. Sketch the landscapes , the flora and fauna, the manifesto of your most secret home. Conjure up adventures. Journal your dreams . Entertain your next hypothesis or poem, your next invention, your next big idea. Make it out of the ordinary. Make it magical, make it plausible , make it yours. Chart the road back, the road forward. Then draw a map ,to remember by. Or what’s a book for writing for?
