Apparently I'm Wander Woman.
My friend, Tracy, told me some time ago I have a "wanderlust." Results from a personality test pegged me as a "searcher."
I may as well admit it; it's all true. I'm always wandering around searching for something: answers, questions, the perfect shoes, happiness, the ideal climate, world peace, pants that fit properly, craft ideas, emergency chocolate, beautiful art, myself. The list is endless.
My brain never shuts down. Unfortunately, it's generally not working on solving problems like putting an end to world hunger or curing cancer. Oh but if I could train it to do those things ...
More often than not, though, my brain is thinking up new questions and figuring out how to find the answers. It's creating busy work.
The up side of that equation is that it keeps me out of trouble; the down side is that I can think up a lot of trouble. Fortunately, I had a sound upbringing that instilled morals that tend to keep me out of trouble most of the time.
That leads me to a question for which I've been seeking an answer: What is going to happen to the world when today's children are in charge?
