Curious about Possibilities?

It begs the question–what tatoo would you/have you considered adorning your body with? If I were to get a meaningful tatoo it might be a “?.”  A little deflated  exclamation point that tends to lead one to more of their unanswered kind instead of  to other more definitive punctuation such as a period. Questions often breed other questions. It’s funny how if one remains curious, even answers can lead to more questions.

Be Curious About Possibilities

The reason I would choose to permanently remind myself to question by adding pigment to my as now blank skin, is to constantly remind myself  to be curious about possibilities. Curiousity prevents erronious judgments based on incomplete information.

My  judgments have proven error prone enough to reliably belive I have many, if any answers. I consider it especially dangerous to the point of possibly being delusional, to belive that I might have “the” answer to anything.  I prefer to stay in the shade of gray called “my opinion” or “an” answer.  Time tests truths and few pass. Additional information can reduce a once charished belief to utter disbelief at the speed of thought. 

Most likely, I’ll never get my “?” tatoo.  It seems too lasting for someone who likes to change his mind often.

Magical Possibilities? Just Ask!

I will share with you some of my favorite “?’s.”  They are from the land of magical possibilities.

How can…?

What if…?

I wonder…?

Is it possible…?

I hope you have many favorite “?’s.” They can serve as travel agents to worlds only you can imagine!
