Quest, queen, quell, quench, quest, quit, quagmire, quip, queue, quest….
Notice a pattern? Me too. Somehow the mental transmission got stuck in quest gear. Quest.
We just don’t get enough quests these days, unless we’re characters in a fantasy story, in which case do people actually eat dragon and what’s a unicorn go for these days?
But I digress.
There’s a reason the story of the quest endures; it ignites something in us. That deep, quiet place inside us yearning for adventure; for tests of moral fortitude; for exotic lands and exotic sights.
For some, the idea of the quest leads them to far-flung corners of the Earth, or perhaps even beyond. Others find every quest they ever need nestled between the covers of books, be they electronic or analog.
But we wouldn’t be human if, while searching for Q words, quest didn’t pop up time and again.
