symbolism of maps

I’ve long used maps symbolically... maps represent the idea of journey...

...and when tied in with birds, it can bring to mind the idea of migration. I think in a way we are all migrating through this life, on our own journeys. So in that respect, the “places” on the map aren’t as important as the journey itself. So my use of maps is often more about asking a question, such as where are we on our journey? And where are we going? Are we where we want to be? Or do we want to be somewhere else? How do we get there?
