Where shall we go today? Books and poetry, artists and their ideas can take us anywhere in the world; everyday we can discover a new voice, whether it be in your own language or translated into it, and a new place, whether it be real or imaginary, right where we sit. We don’t have just one tongue or one world or even one time we can have hundreds more of each!
So when you’re not travelling the world in body, you can travel it in mind instead…
“Earth has not anything to show more fair” (Wordsworth)
“Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it” (Kipling)
“All the world’s a stage” (Shakespeare).
“Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World,
With the wonderful water round you curled,
And the wonderful grass upon your breast
World, you are beautifully drest.”
By William Brighty Rands
