ABOUT

The Sojourner

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.
