maverick, that was lovely. True as well.
"What if..." is a thought that has led to so much, in both
art and science! For some reason, the Star Trek TV series
came to mind. I think maybe the endless quest for new
discoveries may be what made the show so popular--that's what we have all done from infancy; from the very first time our eyes could focus, we lay on our backs exploring with our eyes. Then we experimented, found a way to turn over in our cradles, then crawled and toddled, ever into new
discoveries! I love the quote, and would add that if we ever quit learning, we might as well be dead.

Exactly. If I go through a day feeling like I haven't learned anything I feel as if it has been a wasted day. If my experiences for the day don't teach me something worthwhile, usually something I read does. Inspiration comes from knowledge and understanding of the world around me.
