Curiosity Lying In Wait

 A   L   O   H   A !

So we all embark 

wondering what lies 

over the horizon, 

what's around 

the next bend. 

And isn't that, 

in the end,

what drives us?

    Blake Crouch

A sense of 

curiosity is 

nature's original

school of education.

Smiley Blanton

It is not 

happiness that 

makes us grateful, 

but gratefulness 

that makes us 


Brother David Steindl-Rast

Curiosity is 

lying in wait 

for every secret.

Beautiful photos and great quotes. It looks like the bottles were photographed from a cruise. I loved the photo and want to take one myself one of these days.

I'm not sure you noticed that I tried to let you know your little package I sent you came back. I even show it in this post:


about half way down, I think. I hope there is some way to get this to you, because I haven't opened it. Let me know if you have a way to get your address to me.
