What are you wondering about–related to caves and bat roosts, Brazilian free-tail flight?
I have been reading A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger. He quotes many people in his book. This part seems relevant to interpretive work:
For many of us, the beautiful question is some variation of one Paul Bennett of IDEO asks himself: “How do we continually find inspiration so that we can inspire others?”
That question must be asked and answered fresh, over and over. There is no definitive answer, at least not for the creative individual who wants to keep growing, improving, innovating. To say, I’ve figured it out—this is what I do and how I do it, is to play it safe and thereby risk everything.
Keep yourself away from the answers, but alive in the middle of the question—Novelist Colum McCann.
