No Speedways

Prompt  ….

PHOTO PROMPT © Björn Rudberg
Roads here are not radii of a circle that ultimately meet in the center. Invariably all roads fork into two or lead to a dead end.
Cockroaches have a unique set of genes that allows them to thrive almost anywhere. The hardy insects evolved to crawl through toxic environments and re-grow broken limbs.  Even the evolutionary forces had to take an alternative route to achieve its objective of producing an intelligent species on this planet.
What are you blabbering about?
I am going back and you may continue your search for Anansi’s pot of wisdom here or …..  by yourself.
Words ~ 100
Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.

    • That pot of gold or wisdom is inside our minds and often we project it to people or places that we are unable to reach. (an explanation that is little too glib) 🙂

      Thank you JM.

    • I used the example of cockroach as it is considered to be the pinnacle of evolution (in survival) and there was no way it could have evolved in to intelligent beings with its genome …. hence the example (literally a dead end).
      Thanks for the read and the interest.

  1. I’ll stick with trying to identify at least a little of the contents of Anansi’s pot of wisdom. If I finish up with a cockroach, so be it! Nice story, and thank you for introducing me to Anansi.

I love arguments
