The debate about the function of language is ancient: there are those who believe that language can partially construct reality, and there are those who believe that language is primarily a set of labels for objects. There are also those who believe that language can act on people; this is a magical view of language. And in fairytales, legends, and myths, language is capable of action e.g., magic passwords, spells, incantations, etc.

voy•age
ˈvoi-ij/
noun:
1. a long journey involving travel by sea or in space.
Synonyms: trip, expedition, excursion, tour

There is no mistaking the physical exploration entailed in this simple definition of a voyage, and yet the word's Latin origin, viaticum, or "provisions for a journey," calls to mind far more than embarkment alone. The origin of the word itself invites us to consider the predicate needs at our own or others' starting point(s): How will we prepare ourselves? What will allow us, inspire us, or force us to leave our present situation in pursuit of something beyond our realm of experience?
