Too Many Questions


Getting answers from nature is what I used to do. Nature threw back a question this morning. 

"Is a problem a problem?"

I was then bothered by a problem that seemed not to be a problem again.

"Do I have a problem? " I asked myself.

An old man like me simply gaga over too many trivial things, included chocolate ice cream while hiking in the jungle.

Cher said...

is problem a problem? not when you don't have a problem with it. did i just made sense? lol! ;)

Steve E said...

I do see a problem (of course--grin!). Your question mark is not..it is a scroll at the top end of neck on the violin. That is so obvious to me.

What a picture of problematic perfection! And your shoot as well....

PEACE!

you still hv inquisitive mind..

demie said...

This is a good question!
I suppose the farther ones goes ( mentaly or even physicaly ) from a problem the less is feels like a problem anymore.
It is a practice one learns in the end.

Great shot of the young fern. It does indeed look like a question mark. I dont see any problem here, no no problem at all especially if related to chocolate ice cream. But while hiking in the jungle? Gosh, you have a big problem mister.. hehe.. Have fun hiking..

Diane AZ said...

Maybe nature is reminding us to keep a sense of wonder.

lets forget the question and concentrate on the beautiful question mark !

Problem does not exist in nature, problem is man made...

EG CameraGirl said...

It's not a problem to see so much beauty in nature. :))

Barbara said...

Chocolate ice cream is never a problem, only a solution!! Love that photo!

Deb Crecelius said...

A problem is not a problem.
Not having the answer, that's a problem.
I'm hoping you always have the chocolate ice cream for the zombies.
And maybe a little for yourself.

Jean said...

Yet another neat and edgy post.:)

Deborah said...

fabulous!

Cheryl said...

I like the fern as a question mark...hmm...is a problem really a problem?? Now I will be pondering...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Could be a worse problem ;>)...and anyway, as long as you question yourself you don't really have a problem. I love the natural reminder that it's good to ASK!!!

Sharkbytes said...

You find the most perfect fiddleheads!

Emm said...

That is so beautiful. I love the patterns in nature and think it is all about solutions not questions!

Jana said...

what agreat find...indeed you are so right, sometimes we should try to step aside and see that some of our problems are none...happy new week+sunny greetings from Holland!

Harshi (a.k.a. Harumi) said...

Another beautiful slice of nature!

About problems.. I think having them is really good, they make you think a lot, thinking a lot makes your brain work a lot, and an active working brain makes you a lot intelligent than a dormant one. So the conclusion is:
Problems create intelligent people! :D
