      That which eludes us and
      seems to stay just out of
      our grasp, holds an incredible
      fascination and attraction.

      The anticipation (fanciful
      notion) that we will one day
      prevail and actually capture
      that elusive something gives
      life a certain purpose...albeit
      a superficial one. Yet, it
      is such an appealing counterfeit,
      this dream of success, that it
      can displace success itself,
      and become a lifelong quest.

      It is the thrill of the hunt,
      the pressing journey of the
      aspirant, that can be so
      captivating that the "seeker"
      refuses to ever totally give
      up the hunt for the prize...
      and yet seems to be so fervently
      bent on finally reaching the
      summit, bagging the bird,
      gnawing on nirvana.

      The aspirants bemoan the
      fact that they have searched
      for so long, and yet...
      they seem to play a part
      in sabotaging the hunt.

      It is the ego that has
      them stuck. It's a favorite
      wile of the coyote to
      double-back on its prey.

      In this case, Wile E has
      double-backed on himself.
      To actually catch and devour
      that bird would end his
      treasured identity of a
      fervent seeker, and he
      (the metaphorical seeker)
      is not sure that the prize
      will be as good as the
      heart-pounding adventure
      of the chase.

      The snare of the fowler.
      A blind-side blitz.

      Jeff

      PS: Tampa is 4-0...you know.
