2. I would only worry if you were on the opposite side of that thought...

Those whose minds are closed, whose lives are devoted only to a few small things and no contemplation of anything else are truly living the lives of quiet desperation we've all heard spoken of...

Seek every day to learn, experience or contemplate at least one new thing and you will live a fulfilling and meaningful life. SHARE that learning or curiosity with others? Now you're contributing to the species and now that meaning expands beyond your lifespan and into that of the species...

My biggest fears are that not enough people are thinking of the future of the species and are too wrapped up in the mundane and the trite to be bothered...THAT would be a tragic outcome for all, not just me or you or a select few.

Keep learning, keep living, keep sharing...that is the secret to life in a nutshell (to me anyway!!!)
