Tolkien’s famous poem starts: “Not all who wander are lost.”

Which is very true.  Some of us are just looking for our glasses.

More insights next week,

    That’s a dear poem. I memorized it when I was a kid in 6th grade and haven’t forgotten it since.

    Amen. Glasses have that tendency to wander…


  4. Phew. Way to pull that one out. I read the title and was like, “Literature notes? Literature notes?! Where’s my funny?” And then there it was. Phew. You had me scared there, Andy.

  7. I hate it when they turn up in a spot I checked four times already. How do they do that?


    • I believe that glasses exist in some kind of quantum reality and ‘wink’ out of existence in direct proportion to our emotional desire to find them. i.e. the only way to find a pair is to give up hope of finding them.

  8. Grasshopper, you are becoming a master of combining the simple with the profound.


  9. In my case, I always have my glasses but I’m usually looking for my Garmin. 🙂


  10. Then there are those of us who start out looking for our glasses and end up wandering. A hybrid, so to speak.

    Tell me about it! It is unbelievable just how the little scamps like to run off and hide several times a day.
