Partly collected thoughts.
Glenn Gould writes,"If I had to select just a single word to express my deepest feeling about the world, and about humankind, it would be that one: wonder. I consider it a measure of how unevolved we are that so many people appear to be capable of that feeling only when they contemplate an imaginary, supernatural plane. It is hardly surprising that our world holds so much unnecessary suffering, when so many people are willing and eager to condemn it to second-rate status in favor of one they've made up out of whole cloth." So true, yet so sad... And maybe there wouldn't be nearly as much suffering (human or otherwise) if we'd simply wonder more about life and less about the afterlife.And unlike other animals, such as the two in photo #7, we humans are throwing out our sense of wonderment towards nature -- replacing it with a desire for all things spiritual.
And maybe I'm being a bit too one-sided here, but it looks to me like Photo#7 has also managed to capture the spirit of Mother's Day!:~)
