the Enduring Quest

All of the enduring stories of the world are journeys. Whether of Don Quixote or Ulysses, the greatest stories are of a person who goes on a quest to measure himself/herself against the challenges and adversity of the world. I am no longer a young man. I have journeyed far, long jousting with my own windmills. I guess I identify with Don Quixote because, as an older man, he continued his quest with unrelenting zeal and passion, as do I. The thing about heroes on a quest is that while they may not outlive the burning out of the sun, they will outlive the brief candle of their own lives.
