Building and Deconstucting Mysteries

Without mysteries, life would be very dull indeed. What would be left to strive for if everything were known?
Charles de Lint

They have been putting up a new building next to the clinic where I work. I was lucky enough to come back from lunch and found them putting up a piece of the structural frame. A good lesson for always having your camera handy even when you're at work. I loved the sculptural and shadow effects and was able to get some shots off before they discovered I was missing. It's a good lesson in even when you only have 5 minutes you can still make art. Now the mystery remains of what the building will become.

One of the benefits about my longer commute now is I listen to NPR as I drive to and from work. Much to my surprise I really enjoy the reports about economic factors. I'm coming to understand concepts before there were a complete mystery for me. They do a good job of deconstructing what economics, especially world economics are all about. It stretches me and I continue to grow in my understanding of how the pieces of the puzzle that make up this world are put together. But then that is what makes life so enjoyable both the building and deciphering of the mysteries. It would be a dull world without it.
