Day 3189: Unsolved mysteries

Everywhere I look, I see unsolved mysteries. I assume I am not alone, so I asked a question about that last night on Twitter.

People shared many unsolved mysteries, some relatively trivial and others profound.

Do you see unsolved mysteries in my other images for today?

It’s a unsolved mystery to me how they choose all those National Days.

It’s also an unsolved mystery why many good people’s self talk is so negative and critical.

If it’s a unsolved mystery to anyone why I was listening to “High Maintenance” by Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, here it is:

What’s an unsolved mystery to you?

If it’s a mystery why I end each blog post with thanks, that’s easily solved: I’m very grateful to all who visit here, including YOU!

  1. I love mysteries and of ask myself -‘why?’ Or ‘really?’ – neither negative self talk, just curious and then surprised

    Wow! Is it really, really national punctuation day?? (Did I read that correctly?) I always appreciate proper punctuation; I especially enjoy seeing groups of sentences that take on completely different meanings depending on where those little dots, dashes, and squiggles are placed. Ah yes …

  3. This is a great topic and what I gather from some of your photos is that autumn is near and some people prune their trees during this period. However, recommended pruning is supposed to be in winter because some trees recover and heal faster, but others can be pruned in autumn also as well as hedges. It depends on which kind of trees. Heavier pruning is performed when the tree is dormant, preferably in late winter before active growth begins.

    I love two quotes which are very different from each other:

    “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”- Albert Einstein

    “Our ignorance can be divided into problems and mysteries. When we face a problem, we may not know its solution, but we have insight, increasing knowledge, and an inkling of what we are looking for. When we face a mystery, however, we can only stare in wonder and bewilderment, not knowing what an explanation would even look like.”-Noam Chomsky

  4. It’s an unsolved mystery to me how the dog sees over the steering wheel and reaches the gas pedal!
    I have talked to myself, at length, about this and received no suitable explanation.

  5. Why do perfectly good, and often wonderfully designed, masks get thrown away? This is a real mystery to me. I see some disposable masks thrown on the ground and while I wish they were disposed of properly I understand they might have outlived their usefulness, but I also see other, really cool masks in parking lots and I think, I’d be tempted to pick that up and use it if I weren’t afraid of possibly catching something from it.

    Why would anyone support Donald Trump?

  7. I’ve sure lost a lot keys and reading glasses. Their disappearance remains a mystery. But I think more about human behavior. i have many questions about the mysteries that make people do the things they do!
