The Squire Theater this past Sunday showed a film, as part of the Gold Coast Film Festival, about a recently discovered Mona Lisa which Leonardo Da Vinci (not DiCaprio) painted 15 years before the famous version which is on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Life is really interesting. This is one solved mystery, but there are so many which have not yet been solved, such as whether Bogfoot and Yeti (aka the Abominable Snowman) exist, why so many airplanes and ships have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle, whatever happened to the Jamestown Colony or Atlantis, and whether there was ever life on Mars. Maybe YOU will be the one to solve one of these mysteries some day. That would make you famous. Of course, in order to investigate any of these and other mysteries (Did ancient aliens visit us? Is that why the Egyptians and Aztecs both had pyramids and worshiped cobras even though those two peoples never had contact with each other thousands of years ago, one group having lived in Africa and the other having lived in North America?). However, to get the answers, you will need to develop a skill you have begun to use: how to do research. You'll also need sharp reading and writing skills. Keep working on the ideas and abilities being taught to you in high school. You never know when you will have to use them in the future.
