My name is William, before 2013 everyone knew me as Bill but then something happened. After this event I wanted to go back to my 'real name', my passport name, later it was shortend to Will.
I was born in a lunatic asylum in 1960. The maternity wing of the Lennoxtown Hospital was part of the asylum. My parents spent most of my childhood moving and I have spent most of my adult life doing the same. I begin to feel uncomfortable when standing still for too long.
St Augustine wrote "life is a book and those who do not travel read only one page".
Sojourner is a verb. It is more than just movement or travelling. It is about experiencing the space between a tourist and a resident.
