Museums are incredible! They archive, preserve and share our collective knowledge and history as humans. Where else can you go to one place and see art, outer space, gems, and dinosaurs all in one place?
Halloween is the best holiday ever! No religious controversy, just fun! You can dress up as horrible murderous beasts, rampage the neighborhood extorting people for candy, and everyone thinks it is great fun!
The colors of autumn are incredible, until they litter up my yard and I have to rake them up. Maybe someday somebody will invent a device to capture or collect the falling leaves, and package them up, before they hit the ground.
Grandkids are incredible. Watching your kids struggle through the same struggles you went through with them is somehow very satisfying. We get to sit back, nod sympathetically, and say something like "Yes, we know exactly what you mean. But we already went through this with you. Now it is your turn."
What exactly is gravity? How can space-time warp?
Why is the old Looney Tunes character Marvin the Martian only a minor character? He is the best ever!
How can people like Mother Theresa, Ghandi, Albert Einstein, Joseph Stalin, Hitler, and Timothy McVeigh all come from the same DNA?
Telephones are creepy. There is just something odd about a disembodied vice coming out of a tiny object I carry in my pocket.
It is too bad we cannot sit in a park and just talk with kids anymore. Too much fear, justifiable for sure, but still a shame. Kids think in such incredible ways and say the best stuff. Working with kids as an educator, formal and informal, has been an amazing experience.
If everyone was just nice to others, get to know those who are different from us in whatever way they may be, cared for the benefit of all of us, not just our self, then just maybe this world would be a better place. Why is that so hard for so many?
The only reason to eat dinner is to have desert. Preferably ice cream and cookies.
That's it for now. No judgments please. I already know I am odd. Thanks for reading.
