"QUEST ... what IS it? ... QUEST is both a noun ... and ... a verb. A search ... and ... a seeking; an asking ... and ... to pursue, says Webster. And I say to QUEST is to seek and pursue with passion that which we know is attainable, even though others may call us foolish.

Remember the words from Man of La Mancha? "This is my quest to follow that star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far." I believe that a true QUEST is to continue seeking with passionate FAITH, even though the world tells us that to believe in that which we cannot see is FOLLY.

FAITH is FOLLY, the world says, only FACTS are worth seeking. And I say: "Don't confuse me with FACTS ... my FAITH is made up!"

QUESTION ... what is IT? To QUESTION while on the QUEST is to be willing to explore along the way: "unanswered questions and unquestioned answers."

Perhaps a good place to begin is with the QUEST-ion:
1) Do you believe in the spiritual Power called FAITH? ... or do you believe FAITH is FOLLY? I invite you to sit with the question, take it with you during your day and OWN your own answer! "

Amazing how lately, I have been having faith in having a beautiful family...we do already have a beautiful family although a little disfunctional, ADD except for Buffy's simple life as the resident travelling bitch of the family.. It is so cool going one state north up into the mountains and the exhilaration of the Black Canyon chiselled through by the most powerful Gunnison river..
It's nice to sleep in inside with my muse sleeping till noon!

Jeff allowed us to stay an extra hour...I'll actually tip this nice family an extra $5 tip for treating us so nice... His wife was so funny after a glass of wine...she treated us to the most delicious chilli rellenos surrounded by egg roll shells...My angel was a little concerned that I might eat more than my share....:)
Check out the "Country Lodge" in Montrose...
We hung out camping out on a hardboard plantform in Orbis for $66
except for the camping it is the beautiful resort of clothes optional hot tubs with lithium to counteract any depression in the customers...
Maybe some of the emotionally unstable exs might benefit from a couple nights of this place..
just bring tons of padding to sleep on the hard wood!

"Don Quixote, the Man of La Mancha, asked an important question. Who is crazy? Am I crazy because I see the world as it could be or is the world crazy because it sees itself as it appears? A mightygood question and one that is facing us today.

The underlying question is: what do we consider to be the truth? Is the current state of the world, the truth about the human family? Couldn’t any of us pause for a moment, close our eyes, and see another kind of world? Which one is more real, the one that has currently manifested itself or the one in our minds? How we answer the last question will determine the direction of our lives and the state of the world in the days, months, and years to come.

In Love We Journey With You."
