Answer:  ORGAN-IZED

(Wonderful pun, and a great Jumble!  We do have another new clue word today, in “higher”.  Go get’ em, ralis95!  We have three new jumbles, from what I can see, with only the one for “notch” having been used before.  I struggled to get “garble”.  I didn’t take the time to write out various combinations, though.  I just decided to back into it.  It’s faster.  Fortunately, the entire set up, and the first six letters, made the answer easy enough for me to get.  From that I knew I needed an R, A and E, and that’s when it became un”garble”d!  Despite all that, I still thought it was a great answer letter layout.  The cartoon did a fine job illustrating the gag.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

English: Painting of Christopher Columbus. The painting Virgen de los Navegantes (in the Sala de los Almirantes, Royal Alcazar, Seville). A painting by Alejo Fernández between 1505 and 1536.

You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”   —   Christopher Columbus

(This is the first quotation from Christopher Columbus since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It’s a good quote that can be applied to many other aspects of life.  We all know, now, that the ocean can be crossed, so we don’t necessarily need that courage.  But, the first people who went into space needed that same kind of courage.  People facing death need that courage.  Crossing into the unknown, for most of us, is very daunting.  Those are the big things, of course.  There are plenty of lesser challenges that involve breaching our personal unknowns.  And, we all need to just suck it up and go for it.  That’s when we progress.  That’s when we grow.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
