Today I had reason to drive for a few hours in the car by myself.  This allowed for lots of think time and my mind wandered.  I decided to make a list of wonderings, nothing earth shattering, but items to ponder as I drove.  Here’s my list:

  1. How much money is enough money to have?
  2. Why do they board planes from the front to the back?  Wouldn’t it be more efficient to board back to front?
  3. How can you get people to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem?
  4. Will the Detroit Lions ever win another Super Bowl in my lifetime?
  5. What will my students remember from my class in 5 years? 10 years? 25 years?
  6. Has the medical community done us any favors by helping us to live far beyond our “usefulness” only to hurt/or be miserable in the final years of life?
  7. If I won a million dollars, how would I spend it?
  8. What would stop hatred in the world and promote mutual respect?
  9. If I could invite 8 people to dinner, living or deceased, who would it be?
  10. If I had not gone into teaching, what profession would I have chosen?  How would that have changed my life?

  1. Funny…I was wondering about number 10 when I walked outside today and breathed in the fresh, crisp air, after an ENTIRE weekend of working on report cards…
    p.s. I loved your wonderings…and your depth!
