Traveler’s Guide: Circle Route

This is a pocket map of our planetary journey. Within a frame of revolving star trails, the sky contains an inset of changing moons as the sun floods the open expanse of the desert landscape with light.

The poem, printed on mulberry paper inside the front cover, says:

Starlight, moonlight, sunlight.
–The limitless gaze of the desert
–the circular timeline of our planet.
What is the way?
–We cannot foresee a destination,
–we can only hope
–to be pleasantly surprised.
Ever turning and returning
