unintended & the human mind & ???

just found this photo while clicking through the july photo files. i have no memory of taking it - i guess it's an accidental photo, snapped without noticing.

on a more intended note, i keep enjoying the online courses i came across - especially this one: "Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World" by Eric Rabkin:

We understand the world — and our selves — through stories.
Then some of those hopes and fears become the world.

here's the course description
there's a timetable for it, but you can also just watch the videos. which have titles like this one:  "1.7 The Grimm Brothers: "Cinderella" - Girls, Boys, Economics, and Fairy Godmothers"

after listening to it, i tried to remember my favourite childhood tale.

and up came the memory of "Die 3 Fragezeichen" - "The Three Question Marks", a series of kid detective stories, but of course, the symbolism is interesting:
