On Asking ‘Why’

by perpetualflaneur

In the process of knowing the  who, what, when, where, and how, we often forget to ask a fundamental question, one that glues all these descriptive details together, the ultimate why? The answer may not be quickly provided, accessible, or easily understood; that is why the overall thought process behind it adds depths behind the other details we encounter or collect. Asking the why question, then, is a challenge for each of us. It is a call for us to exercise our mental faculties in understanding anything that may come up because sometimes in evaluating or in obtaining full comprehension of situations, people, or events and such the why factor makes a huge difference.
