Wanderers don’t just move in desperation in hot long deserts. They move in hope as well. Hope to get pearls out of their dives in the deep blue oceans.
The pearl of words from the oceans of mind. Awakening of hopes within, sometimes brings struggle with it, and    when struggle/search begins,
destinations come looking for the wanderers. A handful of such optimistic mystics started their journey of creativity from the homes of their introspection.
