My theme for the A to Z April Challenge for 2018 is “Me and My Blog”
Q U E S T
In earlier posts I have mentioned my love of reading and also my desire to write. One of the things I like connected to both of these is a good quest.
Quest : A long arduous search for something
I have always enjoyed stories that involve some kind of journey, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is a good example of this. Frodo and his companions set of on a journey of immense proportions, facing extreme obstacles and overcoming them, scattered by quiet serene moments and glimpses hope only for them to be shattered, eventually reaching their destination.
Most stories are Quests in one form or the other, the hero is always on some kind of journey, emotional, physical, enlightenment or survival. I read somewhere and I cannot remember who said it, write the books you want to read. One day I would love to write the most epic tale of adventure, of a quest beyond all imagining.
If you want to get all philosophical life of course is a quest. We are all on our own journeys and for most of us it is arduous.
Just a short one tonight as I am very tired. It has been a long, hot day…
I hope you join me tomorrow for the Letter R
