you never know...

I would imagine that when you walk thru my home,
you might wonder...

-for example-

What is that little stumpy guy doing on the kitchen shelf?

Or, why ever is there a goat on the dining room table?

At every turn, in many nooks -- there may be
a question just waiting for an answer.

The truth be told
to me it is all about
W O N D E R

That wonderful feeling of smiling just a bit, in that somewhat
curious way, when something that doesn't quite make sense
kind of makes all the sense in the world.

Shouldn't life really be all about not really knowing
what awaits around that next corner?

Thank goodness my home has many corners.
lots of
"you never know"
spaces.

To leave in wonder always feels
like the best kind of departure.

Personally, I don't want everything "explainable". I had a conversation last night in fact, where we discussed how sad it is that some "scientists & intellectuals" want to put an explanation on everything. Anyone in the human race that believes we have all the answers is naive. They shouldn't think so hard. Embrace the wonder. '

And of course, I love the pumpkinhead dude on the goat.

I do so agree...I really don't need or want an explanation for everything. Two woodpeckers on my tree this morning -- enjoyed watching them, don't really desire to know how they found this tree on this farm. Wonder -- thank goodness for it (and of course for pumpkinhead dudes that decide a goat is the best mode of transportation around).
