\DAHY-vuh-geyt\ , verb;
But, vague vagabond, you will seem to divagate, while in reality you will keep both eyes open and your ears pricked.
-- Umberto Eco, William Weaver, The Island of the Day Before
This tendency to explore, to divagate, means that I sometimes take a long time to get where I intended to go.
-- Eric Kraft, At home with the Glynns
The Latin roots of divagate are di-, "two," and vagare, "to wander."
