Currie's Gratitude 15 July 2014

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.   [Albert Einstein]

I seem to have as many questions as I DO days. In fact, I have way more than one question at a time. Still, I think I shall BE this way always. I don’t always [or even that often] voice my questions, but that makes me no less curious. Sometimes answers come by living Life as it unfolds. Others they don’t really come at all.

Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.   [Socrates]

I think wonder is the BEginning of BEing human. I think it is the magic key that unlocks that which is most important, BE that wisdom or silliness.

Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.   [Cormac McCarthy, The Road]

A BEautimous understanding.

I love you, Currie

So true. Wonder and not knowing the answers...beautiful and a bit frightening. Not knowing is the birth of faith, I think. We all want to believe that someone or something knows the answers to all our questions. Humans are so curious. ;)
