I don't know...

...I have considered those three words over my lifetime on this planet and what they have been associated with the volume that they have been said/used in my vocabulary over the years. Books could be filled with the amount of times that I recall saying them and all they represent in my lack of knowledge of things.
Although, quite a few times, too many to count, I have taken it upon myself to research the undeniable missing information from my actual interests and education.
And it reminds me of when I was a youngster in the fact that it is not unlike when I would access my white leather and gold embossed trimmed set of the World Book Encyclopedia that matched my French Provincial set of my pre-teen bedroom of the same two distinctive colors and that I would look up one thing and how that would make me look into an obvious connective topic to that original one, and on and on I would go; for hours of fun.
But no, there is still plenty I do not know and may never ever will.
And yes, I was one of those parents that told their children to look up anything they had thought I would have the answers for them, nah too easy. I thought that for them taking that personal initiative would spur their curiosity as it had mine all those years before, and in the end it did.

Sometimes I wonder, as I watch the TV game trivia shows of Jeopardy and Millionaire where my correct answers come from; osmosis, absorption, is how I interpret what I have retained in the deep recesses of my brain that surprisingly to me appear when I least expect them to, and my feelings of this glorious bonus in life is that at least something still works!

Life truly does go on.

That said, as many grown ups know that when they were teenagers they truly did believe they knew everything, but as any adult will have to admit that as we get older we realize that we know very little and that there is so much more to learn!

So each day that is what I do, by reading current events, decorating ideas, and biographies of people either in the news or on TV or from whatever walk of life or any topic that I decide.
That's the best part of being older is having the ability to make decisions for oneself!

Keeping my brain busy also keeps me out of trouble, ha!
   
On that note of yeah sure, allow me to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy healthy safe and peaceful good night and ask you all to kindly count all your blessings and share all your overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
