Language

I paid $100 to have a blog, gewkey.com, and nobody reads it.  I’ll have to stick to Facebook where I have a regular readership and can even count on their reaction.  My reaction to life and its mysteries is unique, but so is everyone else’s.

Language is what facilitates this.  Language leaves some kind of record.  Language is what enables one to learn almost everything.  Language is what baffles those who limit themselves to the record of nature, and who exclude the supernatural.

Homo ergaster (predating homo sapiens) is said to have figured out the rudiments of language by his use of tools—a good guess.  But then, none of us is certain about why we’re here except my nine-year-old granddaughter, who doubts very little.  (It is written—“out of the mouths of babes.”)
