Mapping our Way

Maps have always been drawn in a bid to chart our terrain, our territory, our way ahead. Some, like the one above, show that our past was once joined together as a whole continent: PANGEA - all the world's land mass as one. Now our physical earth has separated, and we are left to find the union again:

'True philosophers are those who embark upon a voyage into the unknown, unsure of their destination or whether they might even return...a journey to a distant place can be as a mode of discovery. With our paths in life mapped out for all of us, it usually takes the one that leads us away from our goal (to where we are not) to affirm where we should be' - A Mapmaker's Dream
