A-Z Blog Challenge Q: Quest as Agent for Change
Quest is at the heart of what I do – the holy grail,
and the terror that you’ll never find it, seemed a perfect metaphor for life.
I’ve already given many quotes in my P post and others, so this time I’ll resist and put up only this one.
For me Jeanette Winterson’s quote is a bit … hmmmm … terrifying. It gives me a queasy feeling. There is always terror or uncertainty that what I strive towards will not come to be. I’m thinking of peace, an inner peace and an outer one in the world as well. But, I do what I can and I know that this is all I can do.
It is apt that the word question contains the word quest within it. Our quest in life ends only when we stop asking questions, of which we know there are never certain answers. Is it true that part of the answer is in the question? Do some questions qualify as especially important ones, ones we’re quick to avoid? I sometimes feel as if I’m stepping in quicksand if I take on too much or go too deep in my ongoing quest or questioning. That quarry is, for the time being, too deep. I’ll query its’ meaning when I feel ready to tackle it.
And here I’m not going any further about quest as Agent for Change but instead adding some of my q thoughts –
I love reading about historical quests and wonder about my own, and quiz myself about my purpose in life, often.
I’m interested in quarks and quantum physics where the wave is also a particle.
I love quartz crystals and am not so mad about quince or getting shots for quarantine when travelling to exotic places.
How to quell my desire for quality chocolate is ongoing.
I will NEVER queue in a restaurant for food ..
I’m still away in the bush in Botswana (this is a pre-scheduled post) so am unable to respond to any comments. Thank you for coming by.
