Quest is a theme this blog can understand.

My header photo may be the best representation I have of the seeking, persistent nature of questing. All my writing, all my photography, is underwritten by that kind of an itch.

Still, here is a different representation. This is a slide from my old Nikon F100 that I took one afternoon at Kootenai Falls near Libby, Montana, where I had a house a decade or so ago. These guys would get together and paddle their kayaks over the falls, seeking the kind of rush you can only get from feeling like you might be about to die.

“Eighteen months of practice and you’ll be ready to join us,” the guy in the photo promised.

Maybe. There’s a time and place for everything.
