I’d been looking for a career back in the late sixties but it found me.
I went looking for God for a few years in the early seventies but found what I really wanted was to have kids so God went out the window.
I had another shot at finding God or Transcendence a little later on but ended up in a cult so I had to get out but I found Rhonda who was very spiritual and inspirational. I used to say to her, ‘Help Me Rhonda’ and she would smile and help me anyway.
For a few years from 2010 everyone went looking for Bin Laden. I would track all over the streets of Adelaide because Adelaide would be a perfect place to hide. I mean who would think of looking for him there?
Then I went looking for Milton but I found him.
I know a journalist who was sent to write an article for a top American magazine on J D Salinger who proved elusive as God but he wrote the article anyway on NOT finding J D Salinger and still got it published.
Lately I’ve been searching for Equanimity but that’s harder to find, except in snatches, as Bin Laden or J D Salinger.

that means a lot, Beth; I was about to ‘ditch’ it; thanks 🙂
Equanimity! What a beautiful word!
I like this, why do people search for things outside themselves for so long? Looking inside for equanimity or God or self love of whatever you feel you need is so more more of a good idea 😆
I’ve notice you often ‘ditch’ your rambles, please don’t, if this is one you’d ditch then the others are probably gems of thought too! 🤗
thanks Juliette: that is one of the most beautiful and uplifting comments I have ever received 🙂 I have given myself a good talking to: no more ditching!
I like that; I like that very much 🙂
