The Naked Truth

I got nothin'.

C. S. Lewis writes in The Silent Planet, "The love of knowledge is a kind of madness."

Perhaps this is true.

What I'm more sure of is how it feels to start to get the faintest idea of how much I don't know.

It's a bright void.

Good Lord.

I go away for a week and leave you alone, and when I come back find that you've spent the time mostly playing with old, dead bugs.

Must be August.

That looks suspiciously like a giggling brainbug. I like it!
Also, I now have Poppets hiding in various places in my home and car. They make me happy, and remind me to Wake Up.

Giggling? I assumed it had a headache. Though maybe that's because I do. Therefore no insights from me today...
