“‘Why’ is the most important word in this planet’s language, 
and probably in that  of other galaxies as well.”      
Wislawa Szymborska

One of my favorite poets here hits on the reason for any endeavor worth our time, asking ourselves 'why'. It is the repeated question of small children as they try to understand everything bigger and new to their experience. It is the source of adults' finest works in every field of knowledge, every constructive effort. It drives an artist to the absolute joy of working and 'absorbed-ness' in that work. 
It's the voice of curiosity and the source of exploration.
