What did you wish for?

I threw a penny in a wishing well on Sunday. That made me feel kinda like a kid again. Should it though? I actually hang out by that fountain a few times a week. Maybe I should wish in it more often.

It got my friend and me talking about where the origin of wishing wells comes from. I said I would look it up when I got home…Something about deities living in water because all life comes from water and it can be a commodity because of it’s scarcity. I like the answer; it suits my spiritual personality.

What really struck me about all this is how awesome the Internet is. Wikipedia may not be trustworthy, but it certainly is interesting. While I contemplate that, I can’t help but feel like I’m getting old. Should I really be that amazed? I grew up with it (for the most part). Maybe I’m just struck by the little things lately. Be amazed by the mysteries, right?
