The power of questions is the power of intriguing you.
Some questions don’t even need answers, but have the power to move your brain, to make it invent. Invent concepts, ways, doors, solutions, views…
Questions are events (because where you live, there is no florescence of questions). Questions are interesting, they can also be disturbing, or funny.
You can make the decision to let yourself be driven, or be pushed around by the power of questions.
Questions trigger movements in your brain, movements of dance, of dodging, or even swerving. Smile!
Questions secrete glowing happy interesting fog-patches of possibilities around you.
Maybe questions can meet… your own questions. Maybe they help you to ask some more questions to your partner, or… to yourself : to be surprised, to discover the strength of possibilities.
Sorry, I’m French, and if my quirky English tickles you, my bad.
Tool : Invention. Events. Decisions. Movements. Possibilities. Questions are powerful. Ask, or be asked? Both! Dolphins are fast and elegant, they seek this dance.
Oh these questions, I have to write them.
