Humans are naturally curious... don't you think? We want to know things. I suppose that, at times this, can be detrimental, 'curiosity killed the cat' after all; but more times than not it is a beautiful thing to be curious, to be intrigued, to want to know things.
As an adult our curiosities change, more times than not, and quite frankly I hate what has consumed the curiosity of the adult mind. Most people aren't curious about what makes things what they are... how things work, what things are made of, what the human mind is capable of, what makes us, us! Instead, we want to know what our favorite celebrities are up to at all times, we want to know what is happening on our social media feeds, we are curious what others think, and curious about others lives (rather than expanding our minds, we contract them). Those things aren't inherently bad, but when they are the only things we care about we loose substance... It is kind of like living on fast food, it fills you up in the moment, but over time you grow slow and discontented; you crave something more, something real.
I want to live a curious life. I want to learn things... ask questions... fail, look foolish for not knowing something, find new hobbies, new passions. I want to evolve as a human. I want to grow and change.
The world is vast. There is so much to know!
Right now I am curious about yoga, philosophy, the human condition, beauty, wonder, the cosmos, comedy, literature, cooking, living simply, art and creativity. I want to know so much it over whelms me at times.
What are you curious about? What do you want to know?
*I snapped this photo of my older brother in the Boston Public Library. That city is so full of beauty and substance... I am now curious about its culture, its history, and its people.
