Hic Sunt Dracones – Navigating the next Imperative

As a young child I was always fascinated by maps, old and new. They seemed to spark hope, inspiration and excitement of journeys as yet to begin and at the same offer some reassurance about our own place in the big wide world.

And non-more so than marvelous phrase “Hic Sunt Dracones”; literally Here be Dragons first found on the wonderful Hunt Lenox Globe (1503-1507).
