Wonder of discovering

~ jolomon

There are times when I challenge myself to think new thoughts, new ideas, new concepts, and see new opportunities that can spur me into taking initiatives. Perhaps, I have this fear that merely observing and absorbing what unfolds before me through what others and nature share may make me intellectually and creatively lazy. Maybe my capacities and facilities are that limited, but the wonder of discovering from without remains more exciting and overpowering. Truly, in my case, lights bulbs do not often flash without external stimuli. They happen, yes, but so far and in between. Learning comes, more understanding sets in, but in no way as pulsating as the awe I experience with the beauty of life manifested in many people. What would I do if genius were mine and mine alone, or mine greater than theirs? Life would be so much boring.
