Seeker sent on his way!

Seeker spent quite a bit of time in Seattle- he didn't seem to want to leave this beautiful Emerald City!  :) 

While he was here, I decided he really needed some shoes.  Searching for wisdom and the meaning of life may lead him over a thorny path, and I wanted Seeker to be well-equipped for his journey. 
I took inspiration from another Traveler, Zatoichi.  Zatoichi was a fictional blind masseuse and samurai traveling across Japan in a series of 1960s films.  His simple and oft-repaired shoes were my inspiration for Seeker.  I figured a world traveler would have well-worn shoes... something simple and made from natural materials that he could easily repair when need be.

I also felt that Seeker would be seeking spiritual guidance and wisdom from the people he meets on his journey.  In that light, I felt that he would benefit from a dream catcher (or two!) to help guide his way.

While in Seattle, Seeker was able to explore some nearby touristy areas as well as areas well off the beaten track.  In fact, Seeker was involved in an exciting and mysterious discovery as part of his wanderings, but I am not at liberty to divulge more right now.. his journal, which he keeps with him, will explain all.  :)

Rita, I love your additions to Seeker! I am sure he will be much more focused on his path with the help of the dream catchers and new shoes! I know new shoes always work for me! :)
