I have always loved this quote by J.R.R Tolkien, “All who wander are not lost.” Here is the full poem:

The Riddle of Strider

All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,

A light from the shadows shall spring;

Renewed shall be blade that was broken,

The crownless again shall be king.

This is the inspiration for this artwork.

Final Thoughts

I think the song Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros summarize my feeling about a Vagabond Love.

I also love this cover of Neil Young’s Helpless   by Cowboy Junkies.

“Helpless”

There is a town in north Ontario,

With dream comfort memory to spare,

And in my mind

I still need a place to go,

All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,

Yellow moon on the rise,

Big birds flying across the sky,

Throwing shadows on our eyes.

Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless

Baby can you hear me now?

The chains are locked

and tied across the door,

Baby, sing with me somehow.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,

Yellow moon on the rise,

Big birds flying across the sky,

Throwing shadows on our eyes.

Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless.

This is the greeting I included inside of my Vintage Vagabond Valentine

Happy Valentines Day 

To My Vagabond

Companion.

Wherever We Travel 

You are My Home.

With You By My Side

I Am Never Alone.
