‘We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment’ Hilaire Belloc
New day new word. Welcome to the life of a migrant
I have recently learnt a new word: peripatetic. I thought this was a more complex description of a ‘pathetic’, but I quickly ran Google check on the new word and I was wrong. It turns out that it does not mean pathetic, but well, something quote different!
Peripatetic or transient would be a good word to describe so many artists lives. Working freelance certainly doesn’t help with that either. I think I also discovered that word when researching titles for my photography exhibition few years ago which was called Transient.
