As I promised ya'll, I'se leavin' the BACK Porch for war talk (Round III: WAR IS GOOD...for EUROPE )contentious topics and the like...reservin' this heah Front Porch for more sociable talk cause it shur is fun to discover whar we'uns agree.
Today I'm meetin' a lady who is on a personal quest....this is sometimes what ladies call a mid-life-crisis. Her quest is to follow in the footsteps of one o' her heroes from the 16th century. So, she's a goin' to Spain wif a couple o' friends and leavin' work and kids at home.
Since I done this myself--traipse about in Spain--she's lookin' for suggestions. But Aunty B shur is interested in "personal quests". Seems lots o' folks is pursuing somethin' of no commercial value--more to their sense of self, or even discovery of self. I declare this is a healthy thang!
Seems ter me that whenever ya does something that connects to somethang beyond yore immediate needs, that ya grows...when ya pursue thangs that ain't about byuing or sellin, why, that is the reality ya most need.
So, let me rock heah a spell on this porch, keepin' an eye on the chillen' and ya'll stop by an tell me 'bout yore own personal quests, achieved or planned or still dreamin' to do. Shur is pleasant sittin' heah, wif the fragrance of the gardenia makin' the air so pretty. C'mon by fer a visit.
