The Quest for El Gigante

Maybe I talked a good game out there with the guys.

 

I know I sounded confident and brave...

 

but when I hit the bathroom I looked at myself in the shattered shard of a mirror on the wall above the broken sink and I looked deep into my soul.

 

'Did I really have what it would take to find El Gigante and drink from it' I wondered.

 

I looked at a man filled with fear and doubt.

 

I thought about Ponce de Leon and his quest for the fabled Fountain of Youth so many years before.

 

I inhaled deeply as I realized that I must set out on an adventure filled with danger, excitement and intrigue.

 

Then I took this self portrait.

 

It is the study of a man on a mission.

 

The ancients would have called it a 'vision quest.'

 

El Gigante will be mine!
