And where's the fun in that? I ask.
To know everything at once is to miss the point,
which is the exploration,
the learning curve (no matter how steep the angle).
What's left, I ask again,
to do with life if you know everything at once?
Hang out and show off your smarts?
Maybe this is the problem Adam and Eve had.
Not content with gradually absorbing
the wonders of their Eden,
They (yes, THEY: it was hardly her fault alone)
They let that smooth-tongued
abandoning the alternative:
that tacitly counselled them
to take it slow,
take it easy,
follow the heart as it moves toward
one thing and then another
and don't aspire
to grasp it all at once,
in one swell foop.
Don't succumb to the lure of the easy.
Don't try to know everything at once.
