First bite

Self portrait by Graeme Evans

Do you feel it…
an insatiable striving for knowledge?
Do you crave it, because
Knowledge is achievement.
Knowledge is position,
Knowledge is power?

I know I want it.

So I have to ask…
When Adam and his first mate took that one (small) bite of
the fruit of the Knowledge tree,
was it sinfully delicious, and dripping
with the juice of ‘knowing’?

Was that first nibble what started it all?

‘Cause it seems we spend so much of ourselves
in this obsession with understanding,
researching small nuances on every possible subject.
In our information age, our research culture…
the possibilities are virtually endless.

So we log on,

…and surf away…

    Oh...I like that...A poetic truth! I truly enjoy your writing style and subjects! Thank you!

  2. Thanks so much for your comments. They are appreciated!


  3. Very good. I was surprised by the ending when you connected the fruit of knowledge to our fascination with the internet.
