Pondermust. . .
Wanderlust has been defined as the strong desire to travel. Maybe ponderlust is that desire to wonder. Perhaps while wandering.
With a bit of re-imagining of that initial idea, I think the word pondermust may deserve a place in my vocabulary. Not just a desire or a suggestion but a requirement emphasizing its purpose. Come on, it's not just outside-the-box positive thinking but truly a necessity. Whaddya think, Carol Williams? After all, it was you who first suggested the word pondertunity.
This may be the natural progression to purposeful pondering. At least it seems like a possibility to me. And that's really the value of such thoughts, right?
