Hello fellow searchers for quietude, for a slower pace, for naps. We are The Seekers. We appear in the book Dreamy Days and Random Naps by our grand friend, Mawson. That’s Snow Dude in the chair. He doesn’t say much. He likes to put on his specs and look mysterious while he ponders about far-away things. I’m Goldy. I always look a bit like I might be wondering whether to wander off to discover something else. That’s because I am always wandering off somewhere else in hopes of finding things full of wonder.
Our favourite things are poetry and runes and old books about myths and legends and imaginary maps that no-one has drawn yet of mysterious lands that we keep searching for. Snow Dudes favourite song’s are ‘Hey Dude‘ and “A Whiter Shade of Rather Pale Snow’ . I like ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For ‘Coz I Don’t Know What It Is’ and “Seeking Against the Wind.’ Perhaps you haven’t heard those songs? They might be some of the songs that we Seekers seem to almost-but-not-quite-hear while we’re searching for all the songs that are still waiting to be written. We keep hoping that we will find them.
We appear in Dreamy Days and Random Naps of course, and you can also seek us out in another book by our grand friend Mawson. It’s called It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In . We get lost in this bright world all the time. But we’re always confident that we will find ourselves again somehow. Peace be with you.
Mawson’s Guardian says: Thank you, Goldy and Snow Dude. And now a word about where to see more of our wisdom seekers. Dreamy Days and Random Naps is published by Odyssey Books.

Review by Joey Madia: ‘It is profoundly beautiful and so very needed in our troubled, complex world. after you read it, hopefully with a group of family and friends, give yourself the gift of a good nap and mythic dreams.’
Review by Dash Fan: I adored Mason Bear, he has a big heart and children and adults will fall in love with him. I certainly did and I can’t wait to go on more adventures with him!
