Sometimes it is fun to just think. Wondering about something frees any bounds to thinking. Wondering is a time for questioning, rather than problem solving. Wondering is like swimming with Green Sea turtles in Hawaii. Watching and following them while snorkeling is amazing. You follow the turtles and forget about everything else. You wonder how these creatures are so graceful in the water. Our youngest daughter (about seven years old at the time) followed a sea turtle using her snorkel gear way out into the Pacifi c Ocean. We tried to stop her, but she could not hear us. We couldn't catch her, because she was swimming over shallow coral that we could not swim over or walk on. We hoped she would not be raised by sea turtles instead of us. Eventually, her mind came back to reality. When she surfaced, she was far from shore, and scared. Fortunately, she was a strong swimmer, and got back to shore OK. Wondering can get you into trouble, because you forget everything else.
