We are all searching for something.
The journey can be long and arduous, we climb every mountain, we search every shoreline, but we never quite know what it is we are searching for.
The analogy of the grail search is a deep inner pull for you towards your destiny if you were brought up on Arthurian legend, much like I was. I climbed every tree, swam and played in every grotto I could find.
Not much has changed since then.
I still search, I still seek. I still climb trees and play in grottoes. If I stopped, I don’t think I would be me.
The elusiveness of destiny still awaits, and I am still searching…
Someday it will find me, the grail’s search for me.
Good night, sweet dreams.
