Questions About The Quest

Harmony Manipulated Digital Painting by Elizabeth Crawford

You might ask why? Why all this searching, and seeking?
What is it we are looking to find as we travel this
endless climb into an unknown future?

And why would we, should we, nurture such a quest?
If it’s all just a test that might never find a conclusion?
Can’t you at least promise a pot of gold, when it’s finally over?

And no, I can’t make such a promise, may only repeat
what I was told so long ago, back there at the beginning.
“This seeking and searching may never end.

For it is a life long lesson that continues to wend
it’s way until the day your soul steps forward
to quietly but clearly say, “The search is over.” “

Elizabeth Crawford 4/16/2021

Notes: Image is a digital painting I did years ago, then put through the kaleidoscope app. I like it because it makes me think of a pot of gold with that blue center. Blue is the color of knowledge and wisdom.

    I think, when that time comes, that we both will look back and be pleased with the journey we made, how far we came, and that we honoured our gifts and did what we were meant to do. I am so grateful for online, which has made the journey one of connection, rather than a solitary quest. It brought me farther than I would have gone on my own. You are a part of that journey, my friend.

    As you are a major part of mine, Sherry. And I must adamantly agree with you about being online. It is a seeker’s highway, and curiosity’s dream come true, lol. And each time we make this journey together, I find even more to be grateful for. Thank you, my friend…

    I am far from pleased with my life’s journey, but unfortunately, there are no do-overs. I am not miserable, but I’m far from happy. There’s nothing that can be done about it because what would bring me happiness would wreck another’s life. I just hope that when my time comes, something better lies beyond, maybe that do-over.
