Wet Paint

Why is it that if you tell someone there are 400 billion stars in the known universe, they’ll believe you. But if you hang a sign that says “wet paint,” they’ll have to touch it to see for themselves?

Is it part of the human condition to feel the need to investigate everything, even when it seems such a simple, mundane thing? Or do we investigate the commonplace out of laziness, rather than contemplating the deeper things in life?

This has become a metaphor for my life.

I’m learning that there are some things I’ll just have to take on faith. I’m not there yet, but I’m working my way toward wrapping my head around this and understanding it.

“You have much to learn, young grasshopper.”
