Oh, since I started breathing the air on this planet… I started to wonder. Not wander. I am a homebody. I stay put. But my mind sure does go all over the place.
Yep. I was an early wonderer.
“Mr. Carlson… how come you are missing the hair on top of your head?
“Sister Adriana… how come you have so much hair in your nose?”
Well… it wasn’t long before I was warned about THAT type of wondering.
But still it continues. Now… mostly in an unspoken fashion. Yet. Every now and again, I simply have to ask. So tonight, a few questions from my cranium. And then… some life observations from those people (past & present) more insightful than I.
