Meeting him on Yearly Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park, here in New York I instantly remembered this not so often used in contemporary English word - ROVER. I love to talk with my heroes, so I came, asked him something but he didn’t answered. I looked at his eyes and saw there just sky and road, the only things real wanderer needs. Nothing keeps him here or on other place, all his belongings are always with him, in his backpack; his house is nowhere and everywhere in a same time. He doesnt follow any rules or laws - he’s absolutely happy and free like ‘bird of passage’ breaking any borders...

Certainly it was just a role, impersonation of old medieval wanderer, may be traveling poet or singer but I believed to his image and... made a shot.
