The bad thing is that I am no longer afraid to ask if I wonder. The fact is many people do not like me coming up to them on the street and asking them questions. And I don't want to become the creepy neighbor lady that peeks through the blinds at the neighbors. Sometimes I just have to wonder and wait. There you have it.

I had a set of encyclopedias when I was a 10 and my mother would settle arguments with my grandfather using what those books had to offer. I loved the feel of them in my hands and honestly rushed home from school for weeks after they were delivered to explore a new volume.
Oh, and now we settle arguments by doing a search on the computer or iphone. I don't suppose much has changed at all. My son tells me that we don't need to wonder about things anymore because we have this wonderful "new" thing called technology. Amazing!
My grandson told me the other day that he and his friend were curious as to what the most expensive thing on Amazon was. When they Googled it, they found a diamond chandelier ranked at the top...serious money I am guessing. I loved that he knew where to go to find the answer without even thinking. I have to remind myself about Google.
Siri on my iPhone will find things for me too. When we traveling I also wonder where I am or how big a particular desert is or even where to eat in Podunk. I also carry an atlas because my phone is not active is some remote places. Even in this age of wonderful technology, sometimes a real book is the only thing available. If I don't have some way to find the answer I will forget what I am wondering about.
Curiosity is a wonderful thing.
