This website takes inspiration from a childhood letter of nineteenth century Australian poet Adam Lindsay Gordon. In a note to a pal he described himself as ‘in brief a star, but a wandering one.’
Wandering star is often a negative term but I want to reclaim it for something positive. We are all wandering stars in some way. We should all be encouraged to wander in life.
This website forms part of my wandering life as a writer.
Please join me for a wander along my journey in writing. I am keen to learn much from the many people I will meet along the way.
Lindsay is a writer and economist. He lives with his wife Sarah and their young daughter in the beautiful coastal community of Barwon Heads, Australia.
