One might say that our seeking begins even before we are old enough to recall. With very young children, we engage in the game of peek-a-boo. The infant is delighted, smiling and even giggling, when the parent draws back their hands and their face reappears. It brings the child joy to “find,” once again, the face of their parent. As we grow a bit older and Easter arrives, we run around the house searching for our Easter basket and run around the church grounds searching for eggs. It is in our nature to be seekers.
This week I posed a question on FB, asking my friends to name a classic story about a character seeking something of great value. Many of you won’t be surprised that Morris asked for further clarification, asking how I define “classic.” His point was, however, well made since my responses had an enormous range. Within just a couple days, I’d received more than ten responses ranging from Homer’s Odyssey, Poe’s poem El Dorado, and Tolkien’s The Hobbit to Harry Potter and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
