Middle of the night ponderings


Our answers are only as good as our questions....

Caroline said...

Great thought - lots to dwell on.

Niki said...

What happens when the answers still have no questions?

ohc',
a strange but beautiful thing....those ponderings late night
ps, love the pics....

caroline,
so much to dwell on so few words......hope all is ok with you

niki,
in truth, i have no bloody idea....

Anna said...

Good point. And answers always lead to other questions!

You know I love this shot. It is the lines.

:)

The Harbour of Ourselves said...

anna, so they do, or so they should.....

i took the shot on monday when i arrived at waterloo - the shots i take in railway stations always seem to work best in sepia - gives thema kind of warm timeless feel (i think)

Anna said...

I totally agree with you on the sepia in train stations! :) It is a great shot Paul.

Awareness said...

Most of my questions don't have answers, especially the questions I have during my middle of the night ponderings.....so either I'm not asking the right questions or perhaps I'm receiving the answers and for some reason I'm not hearing them?

Or.........the answers come later?

Or.......I've dismissed the answers because I want to debate it some more?

And......what is a good question that would offer up a good answer?

Awareness said...

great pic btw.....sepia certainly is stirring

Niki said...

damn

mister tumnus said...

paul, sorry for using your blog to do this but....

niki! glad you're still with us! what happened to your blog?

John P said...

Questions should always be understood by those who ask them.

The Harbour of Ourselves said...

anna,
must try kings cross next time...if my memory serves me well it's worth a pic

dana,
i really don't know the answer to that....i'll keep searching for the good questions in nthe hope that one day this side of heaven i may get a glimpse of an answer....grand central station would be my 'must take' station....

niki,
yep, bugger even!

Mr T, i don't mind at all - was wondering myself....

ps, should have your story up on the GB website early next week!!!!

John p,
i think i know what you are saying, though i'm not always sure i do. maybe it's the genuine search from within the question that's the key and magic button - much like the questioning of a child longing to understand....maybe

mister tumnus said...

P.S. i have no idea how to comment on your post. I am getting myself a shed for meditative purposes and maybe after a few months i'll get back to you on that! oh, and i'll also let you know if there's a god!

P.P.S. i am so excited about the story! maybe i'll write another one! in my shed!!

Late at night is often my most productive thinking time. Thanks for reaffirming this.

Love the pic and the sentiment.

Kate's Typewriter said...

man, that picture makes me miss the uk so much.

The Harbour of Ourselves said...

mr t

who knows where the stories will go - just remember if you are the next Rowling who gave you your first break!!!!
