The original word for breath was “inspire”, to breathe in.. But that breath
must be released to allow for another so that life might continue. It
all seems so very simple, doesn’t it? So what, you might ask,
does this have to do with all this talk about quest-ions?
When we breathe in, we are inspired, we have captured the spark
that allows all of life to be and to grow. When we exhale, we share that
breath with the world that surrounds us. Does that spark we breathe
bring it the inspiration it needs to grow?
Does it bring that spark of inner fire, that light and warmth it needs
to get on with all this getting on? If your questing brings a better life
to only one other, than you will know, deep within your soul,
that your quest has more than met its goal.

Note: I very recently reread the entire Jean M. Auel‘s Children Of The Earth series, which begins with the title Clan of the Cave Bear. Am so glad I did. When I put up today’s quote, my mind immediately began serving up images from those wonderful stories, filled with the adventures of a woman who is constantly questing, and questioning.
