Questions about our Quest

Well, this blog is late, and I apologize to the Powers that Be, and hope I am not eliminated for this little slip.

Life is a funny thing. Just when you think you have things under control, it throws you for a loop. It reminds me of the advice we are given as writers. When things start to slow down in your novel, ask yourself how you can  make things worse for your protagonist.

Funny though, on this quest we call life, it is often the big things we take in stride. We know how to face them down but it is often a little thing that makes us crumble. The last straw that broke the proverbial camel's back, as it were.

Still, we must continue on our way, questioning perhaps our own folly that has created our circumstances, or doubting the quest entirely, at times.

But this is what we have - each of us. We are really only given one quest - unless of course you believe in reincarnation.

One quest, filled with many smaller adventures albeit,  but one quest to get the  most out of this life, and to give the most back.

The question is are we taking each day and living fully, or are we burying this matter of our quest under meaningless daily trivia.

  1. A very interesting approach to the quest topic. Seems quest was a popular one among my blogging friends. :-)


Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
