“I am trying to figure out…Which would be better, to know or to wonder?”


Thirty of my former high-school students — who are now making their ways out in the world — volunteered to participate in ink + sky’s first Postcard Project. I am grateful for their honesty, their candor, and their willingness to take a risk.

By disclosing what they are trying to figure out, these young men and women are revealing a part of their inner selves. This courageous decision requires the willingness to be vulnerable, which is one of the most powerful acts that a person can demonstrate.

Your thoughtful comments are welcomed below. The author of this postcard will value your affirmations and kindness. Thank you.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Wow that was quite thought provoking there! Being someone who wishes he knew absolutely everything but in fact is far from it, I can certainly back up your claim of wanting to “know” things rather than stewing over them for long periods of time. Sure it would be a lot easier to just know everything, but that also takes away from the journey that is life. That goes for most things along the way. And we cannot call every wonder, “wonderful” because we all have our own preferences and perspectives on that very wonder and how it ranks among the others. Enjoy life, and take time to enjoy the ride along the way! And while being a deep thinker, make sure you continue to put all of your wisdom to hard work, just try not to overthink things either. Finding that balance is key. Best of luck to you in all that you do!
