Is wondering like pondering?
I don't think so.
Wondering is akin to wandering.
Wondering: trying to think
Pondering: thinking deep
I watched the old man wandering around our street stopping to gaze intently for long minutes at a trash can.
I was more puzzled than he! What in the heck is he looking at??
That was years ago. Now I have more understanding. Perhaps his starter button stalled out a bit.
I don't know. Perhaps the gear slipped into neutral.
New Clue: "Can I help you?" (sort of akin to "are you lost?")
No, it is not about how I look.
It is about how I act. I pause too long. I look too hard.
I guess I am grateful for this "new attention", but somehow it seems like something I should wonder about.
Maybe it's my eyes. I have 20-20 with my glasses on, or so the doc says.
I still make visual mistakes.
See, the eyes can take it all in and the brain can still make a mistake.
Got to get this posted fast before I wonder what in the hell I was wondering about!
