"Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark. 
In effect, the people who change our lives the most begin to 
sing to us while we are still in darkness. If we listen to 
their song, we will see the dawning of a new part of ourselves."

Rabindranth Tagore

Existential Intelligence is the sensitivity and capacity to engage questions about human existence – how we got here, whether we have a purpose, and whether there is meaning in Life. Existential intelligence embraces the exploration of aesthetics, philosophy, religion and values like beauty, truth, and goodness. A strong existential intelligence allows human beings to see their place in the big picture, be it in the classroom, community, world, or universe.

First proposed by Howard Gardner, existential intelligence is one of nine theorized intelligences and is considered to be amoral – that is, it and the other eight categories of human intelligence can be used either constructively or destructively.

Wordless Wednesday


  1. Simple, true, waiting to speak.
    Thank you, Jane.

  2. Serene. If this is another of your photos, it's just wonderful. Thank you for posting it.

  3. I just found out about "wordless Wednesday" - bloggers post a photo only - and allow it to speak. It felt great to have a bit of "Daily Visuals" back in my life. And yes, this is a photo of two swan feathers given to me by a man operating a stall at a market in London. He told me he goes regularly to Kensington Gardens to feed the swans, all of which are considered to be the property of the Queen. He winked and said, "so now you have something stolen from the Queen of England!"

  4. I didn't know about Wordless Wednesday, but will have to give it a try. Looking forward to seeing more of your Daily Visuals.
