A step by step guide:
1. Make yourself a map. Draw it on anything--scratch pieces, a legal pad or water color paper. Every day take a new journey. Even if you're tired and your bones bear that deep weariness, you must add to the map. Day by day watch it grow, a hermit crab secreting a shell within which it can survive. Deer shed today, Taharua River yesterday, Aerials in the rain.
2. Nest. Ferret away found objects whenever you can. Discarded gin bottles of the same blue hue reminicent of your grandmothers house, old maps and paintings found in a shed, shells--all of these things will do nicely.
3. Teach yourself to garden. You'll be a terrible gardener. You'll worry about your plants and their shriveled leaves on cold nights. Soon your dreams are filled with capsicums. You'll get better.
4. Learn the different phases of your new world. Fogged mornings create water tracks on your window, midday heat leaves your garden desiccated and flat. The bulls move paddocks from time to time--make sure you know where they are before you set out for your run.
5. Finally--track the skies. A good traveler can always find their way by the light of the stars.
