Adulting: The Wonder of Knowing...
Obviously, as we age, we learn. But do we give up something when many of the mysteries of the universe slowly unfold? When ignorance becomes knowledge?
No. I believe there is delight to be had in both stages.
When tiny, I would gaze on a beautiful flower and not yet comprehend how it bloomed. My ignorance produced in me a combination of mystery and awe that was truly amazing; it would send a shiver down my spine.
But so is the flip side of the coin: now I can look at a beautiful flower with respect and awe because I understand the minute details that go into making the blossom appear. And that knowledge is also, truly amazing.
