Even whilst writing this chapter I spent some time in a mindless task and during this time, the outline became clear; my wife remarked that I had needed space to think; we constantly paint our intellectual landscape with spatial words. Journeys and S tories Often when I give talks on space, I ask people to draw their journey to the meeting. I try to phrase this as ambiguously as possible to allow people to frame their own interpretation. The resulting drawings fall into a number of broad categories, or perhaps, to be more precise, embody elements of a number of categories.

Roads with many bends and curves may become straight lines. The London Underground map follows this principle.  Paths and Patches • • Linear – In all the previous, the land away from the route of the journey is shown with less detail or perhaps left blank. However, with linear drawings, the focus is entirely on the route. The turnings may be shown schematically, so the line on the paper may not be entirely straight, but the emphasis is on the line of the route. Again “real” maps often use this, for example, maps of motorways showing the road as a straight line with junctions along its length.
