The plant Rudbeckia, botanic name for black eyed susan, was named after Olaus Olai Rudbeck (1660- 1740) a Swedish physician and botanist. And while black eyed is simple – the plants have a black eye - no one can figure out who Susan was and did she have a black eye???
The more curious may want to take this further and I know one certainly could. My point, each of us has the ability to learn and keep on learning and the freedom to question, understanding fully well that no question is foolish. Curiosity, elixir for the mind and brainchild for the soul.
