Wander, My Friends: Visionaries, Entrepreneurs and Political Nomads

Sound familiar?  Such was RIM, now defunct.  Such were the Federal Liberals, now clawing their way out of the abyss (as the Federal Tories keep digging).
The greatest warriors, greatest thinkers and greatest visionaries of history never settled, literally.  Wealth was not their goal.  They were not their goal.  Something bigger was.
By never settling, by never getting comfortable, they never stopped - and in the process have changed the world.
"There is God's wine, and there's this other.  Don't mix them.  There are naked pilgrims clothed only in sunlight - don't give them clothes."
  - Rumi as expressed by Coleman Barks
