Just a Pondering

As a boy I wanted to travel time:
Live in medieval monasteries,
See the Sahara before it grew huge,
Catch a glimpse of what was there before.

I was skeptical that today was best.
It wasn't really cynicism, but
Some sense that the world was much bigger
And that I only knew the half of it.

Only half!  Ha.  But I wanted to know.
I still labor under the dual thoughts
That I know a great deal and not much.
Not sure that I'm wiser.  But still curious.
