old songs still ring true...

"...  Every time I change direction
Every footstep ask the question
Does this take me closer or farther away?

On this long and twisting journey
Every passing moment finds me
Wondering will I find my home someday

Sleepless at daybreak
Somewhere else my restless feet take me
For a while
Wanderin' Child

It's not easy never knowing
Where the road you're on is going
Only resting for a moment
then leaving again..."

(Wanderin' Child, from Susan Aglukark's first album: Artic Rose)

Just a bit of old music I used to listen to.  These days I've been trying to retrace my own steps, remember to who I was before, and this music is one of the things that helped.  The music is a little too light for my present taste (if I had heard it for the first time today I would have thought it too childish, too simple) but the meaning is as true -- truer -- than ever: it's still one of the things that defines me (the whole song makes it even truer for me in particular, but this is the part I thought you guys would relate to the most).

I am the wanderer -- no, We are the Wanderer!
Those of us lost;
Those of us who discover ourselves anew every day;
or who remember different days, that belonged to us...

We are the Wanderer:
the world is our neverending journey,
our eternal struggle...
and if we find a small piece of the answer to it all along the way,
then it's worth it, I think.
