the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Hard to imagine...

but true! I have actually received TWO postcards featuring elephant dung. I realize that hundreds, maybe even thousands of these cards were printed, but I think that the odds of one person receiving two different designs of elephant dung must be pretty astronomical. The other card can be found here.

Now, on this card from South Africa, there were three questions (two silly, one serious). Here they are:

If a mute boy swears, does his mother make him was his hands with soap?

If a turtle has no shell, is it naked or homeless?

And the serious one:

At what point are we good enough? When are we self-improved enough to accept ourselves?

I say YES, and NAKED, and I REALLY HAVE NO IDEA. People I believe are pretty nearly perfect confess to striving to overcome self-perceived deficiencies; sometimes, I think there's no hope for me at all!
