Like Curious Children

Before the Great Mystery

Into which We were Born.

  1. Rumour has it this Einstein guy was pretty clever and a “Deist”.

        • How so? Because he made certain his footwear matched his hair?

        • Because I’m not putting my paws in any followers fuzzy footwear. Fuzzy designates both the in and out sides.

    • With fuzzy paws, one can’t feel soft, fuzzy things…

      … or am I wrong? I don’t have fuzzy paws.

      • Oh, you wouldn’t credit it – incredibly sensitive, given the range of tasks they need to accomplish. Not ideally adapted to typing though.
        Now for real sensitivity – noses. Noses and tongues. So if ever a bear sticks his nose in your ear… well frankly it it gets that far it’s too late to be worrying about his intentions.
        Fortunately Bears have good etiquette, and sometimes extend that to include humans.

        • Bear noses- I’ll remember that. My survival skills out in the wild- and quite frankly, in everyday life- are a tad underdeveloped, so I take any advice I can get!

  3. Dunno ’bout Albert, but I still stand like a curious child before bus timetables, window displays, flocks of tourists and other mesmerizing incomprehensibilities.
    Twong… sorry, just testing the spell checker, because incomprehensibilities got through first time – seems it is a real word after all, as well as a fine example of itself that I can be curiously and childlike-ly mesmerized by.
    As for the Great Mystery… we’re good. We go back a long way. GM lets me do my thing, and I pay due respect, and do my part to let others know. It’s part of the job description for Ravens. Ravens, you understand, get their curiosity wholesale with a trade discount, A grade, cold pressed, organic extra virgin curiosity, from the first crop of the finest high altitude sources. And standing so close to the edge, we get to see both sides… you ever wonder what Great Mystery looks like from the other side?
    So yeah, stand like curious children, or hang upside down with your head on one side and squint… whatever it takes, just learn to see, learn to accept. And respect.
    Speaking of respect… cracking pictures. Good job.

    • Actually, I do wonder… what does it look like from the other side?

      Also, where does the Crop of Curiosity grow?

        In the hit list of philosophical conundrums, “Where can I find curiosity?” ranks high, so high. May I congratulate you on your own crop, which seems to produce a particularly rare vintage… which is of course why I came here in the first place.

        Also, I am delighted at your wonder, which in my view is essential for a rich, dissatisfied life. (Satisfied people don’t wonder – they no longer see the need. Tragic.) So nourish that yearning curiosity – it serves us all so well.

        • Whoa, what’s that square pink thing? Identity crisis?

        • Identity crisis, not logged in at the time of commenting, inner child, or possibly the result of passing through a wormhole.

          Personally, I favor the latter two!

  4. the great mystery ~ what is the difference ‘tween blue eyes and brown eyes if they’re looking back at you a certain way? This is the “great mystery” that has been on my mind for days now… and now, gracious one, i hand this greatest of mysteries over to you…
