Allow for awe. Savor enigma.
Strive to become more curious.
Permit your wonder to metastasize.
Pursue your questions’ headwaters.
Sing solutions. Dance with answers.
Remember to swap tunes and partners
no matter how fetching, how beguiling.
Humility and gratitude will excuse your
wanton ways and multifarious conquests.
Court riddles and seduce new mysteries.
Give yourself permission to dabble,
to play, and to live omnivorous,
a casanova of concepts,
a connoisseur of life.
