head straight to Brain Pickings and Richard Feynman’s The Pleasure of Finding Things Out.

“I think we should teach them wonders and that the purpose of knowledge is to appreciate wonders even more.  And that the knowledge is just to put into correct framework the wonder that nature is.”

because you never know when you might round the bend on the nature trail only to come upon a white cat on a purple and orange leash with one brilliant blue eye and one luminous gold eye.


  1. Gosh, I liked that article, and this post and your pictures. I’ve only ever seen one other cat on a leash before :- )

    Teach them wonders…yes!

    Have you ever looked at a school science textbook? Sigh.

    you are the most generous of readers!

    i wonder if the cat on a leash lived at Granny Smith Lane? would you believe that the next week we saw another white cat with eyes of different colors on a leash?! the owner said the cat was deaf, and kept on the leash for her safety.
