Hmmm...Playground for Curious Minds Pages


It's been said that the two most commonly used words on the planet are okay and coke, in that order.

But it seems the word hmmm is not far behind. If you listen closely, you will notice the word hmmm is spoken in nearly every conversation we have.

But is hmmm even a word? The dictionary doesn't have a definition for it - perhaps because it cannot be defined. If you pause to speculate about what it means, you'll probably find yourself saying (you guessed it), "Hmmm..."

So what is this thing we say all the time that isn't even a word?

Hmmm is a magic sound. It is the sound of wonder waking up, the sound a line makes when it bends into a question mark.

When we "Hmmm...", we open a space of inquiry, where what we don't know is more important than what we do know.

As we step into the curious world of the unknown, every day becomes an adventure. Imaginations run wild, creativity is unleashed, and inventions are born.

Standing at the edge of this clearing, we ask of Life, "What's Possible?"
