    Interesting idea on the Coyote. That he knows that the game is the important part. Though he goes through an awful lot of (cartoon) pain and suffering for it to be just a game to him. My high school teacher would be very proud of this analysis, though my high school self would just yell “it’s just a cartoon, enjoy it don’t pick it apart.”
    Indeed. That was my intended point. Search, but enjoy the finding and don’t get stuck in “search mode”. Luck to you and your wife in journeying.

    Nice post. Well thought and well written. I’ve always thought that the coyote is smarter than he seems and his mistakes that allow the roadrunner to escape allow him to keep enjoying the game. They don’t call him Wily for nothing.

    My answer, when you find what you are seeking stop and enjoy it for a while and then figure out if you need to seek something else. That’s what I did when I finally found my wife, now we’re setting of on journeys together.

    I love this thoughtful post. I think, if searching is one of your goals in traveling, and you end up finding whatever it is, the answer to what to do next is – build a new life around it. People aren’t out there traveling just to find the world’s best chocolate. If they’re looking for anything, it’s big. So don’t let it go if you happen to land upon it. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stay whereever you are when you find it – perhaps it’s a part of yourself or something non-tangible that you can take back home with you.
