Sorry to keep you puzzled about where I've been...I've been drawing, and scribbling(!); thinking(!!); and cleaning (!!! - really an '!!!" for me, lol). Even though it's Tuesday, one of the things I've been thinking about is this week's Sunday Scribblings prompt, 'Puzzled.' Had an image in my head, still can't quite capture it. But it looks sort of like this one.
There are any number of things that leave me puzzled. From very small personal things, like what dimension do the other half of my socks go to from the Stargate, otherwise-known-as my dryer? Why am I always the one who replaces the toilet paper roll? Why can't I open the trunk of my car? (It's decided it doesn't want to open for me right now - thankfully, I can sort of access it through the back seat). Why will Word Verification show up on one site for me, and not on another? (If you have Word Verification turned on for your blog, and I haven't left a comment lately, there's that piece of the puzzle for you).
To the medium-sized ones (or at least ones that others might wonder about, too) - on Lost, why the heck did Sawyer let that boy go, without finding out everything he could tell him about the Others? Why didn't Little Miss Sunshine win more Oscars? I love that movie.
To the potentially big ones - why are the honey bees disappearing? Why did it look like the flock of wild geese I saw yesterday, appear to be flying south, this late in spring? What do they know, that we don't?
To the really Big questions, you know, the Life, Universe, Everything ones (a bow of respect to Douglas Addams - sigh). Why can't we all get along? Why must we all run around telling each other what to do all the time, and blowing the other people up when they don't want to do it that way?
Sometimes, I think we each are holding our own small pieces of the puzzle, and if we just knew who had the corresponding pieces, we could piece it all together. We'd hear that satisfying little "Snick!" of the pieces snapping in place. Can you picture that happening? We'd all stand around, having an "A-ha!" moment as we realized how it all fits together. If we could do that, maybe we could see the Big Picture when all the pieces clicked into place, and maybe there'd be peace.
Or at least we might know where our socks go to...
To see other people's "Puzzled" pieces, visit Sunday Scribblings. Oh and if you include the word "peace" in your comment, tomorrow night - after 'Lost' of course, lol - I'll throw the names in a hat or a puzzle box or such, and pick the names of five people who included the word "peace" in their comments on this post, to send a blank puzzle to - so you can make your own puzzle pieces. Or just share your what you think your piece of the puzzle is with us. I think there's power in words and images. Let's piece together a new vision for the people on our planet.
