Some people think this quote is about perception, that just because someone looks aimless they may still be on a journey. But I like to think of it as meaning "wandering IS the journey" -- a kind of, stop-and-smell-the-roses type quote. I think we have to be as intentional about "wandering" as we do about striving. If we never "wander" we will not appreciate all the beauty around us! As unschoolers, we may appear to others as wanderers with no mission in life, but sometimes wandering is the mission.
