  • Occasionally my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, will post on Facebook an observation that invites deep reflection.

    Unlike me, who often posts about doughnuts, funnel cakes or other batter-based goods, Rebecca manages to build on seemingly insignificant everyday events or thoughts to give them greater relevance.

    Case in point: Rebecca posted a few weeks ago about asking “Why?” She was inspired by seeing a child at the “Why?” stage of life and said it got her thinking we should never leave that stage.
