To Be Able To Answer Promptly

“I was gratified
To be able to answer promptly,
And I did.
I said I didn’t know.”
Mark Twain

Oh the joy  of perusing the seed catalogs,  windowsills full of just emerging seed experiments, and the promise of the Spring Equinox for the Northern Hemisphere, just a few weeks away, while those in the Southern await their Autumn. And while I have a firm grasp on the shape and tilt  of the earth, I  inhabit a place of realization that there is so much I do not know about so many things

Peace and blessings to you this fine day.


    1. You are so right on that, Ken. With all of the hullabaloo and bamboozle going on it’s easy to find ourselves in a factual free fall at times.

      My favorite philosopher Rumi suggests:

      “Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:

      At the first gate, ask yourself “Is is true?”

      At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”

      At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”

      ~ Rumi

      This is a big challenge for me daily; some days better than others.

      Thanks for the stop by for a visit, and your thoughtful contributing to this conversation.

    1. Thank you for your very generous words.

      I’m like a myself in a candy shop when it comes to the Massive Online Open Classrooms. There is virtually a class of study in just about every area of interest a world full of varied people could have. One of the best bits of computer/technology use magic ever created in my mind.

      All my best to you.


  1. I love your eclectic mix of classes and reckon you’ll need the peace of the plants after the government one! These open classes must be brilliant and they are only just starting to come to the UK, I must check some out. Have fun, Johanna – I reckon the real joy of learning starts once out of school and continues lifelong!😀♥️

  2. The blog before this wrote of taking courses in the near future also. Thank you for the links. They’re already opened in new tabs and I’m going to have a look. I’ve too been feeling like broadening my knowledge in some areas. Best to you and enjoy your courses my darling. I really appreciate the encouragement I feel from this post!

    1. Oh thank you so very much. I have been a big MOOC enthusiast since they started, taking classes for fun, for serious, for the love of literature, and in the case of the US Government Class coming up, out of a big realization need for knowledge.

      Your words are so kind and I am just thrilled to hear you are looking around the links to the MOOCS. Thank you for your visit and best wishes with your chosen area of study.
