Whattif, Whyzzit

“It is life’s work to recognize the mystery of the obvious.” – Jim Harrison


I became

a scientist at the age of four, asking

deep investigative questions, seeking

an understanding of life.  The purpose

of science I learned a few years ago, teaching

9th grade Integrated Science (having never taken

a formal science class past 8th grade) that the purpose

of science is “to explain natural phenomenon.”

This plays into the scientific mind of a pre-schooler.

It’s just a mistake for the child to query

a frazzled parent.



This is part of “28 Days of Unreason”

based on prompts taken from poems

by Jim Harrison.
