Curiosity

Notice how kids are interested in everything?

I was on a bus a while back and a little girl’s conversation to her dad was something like this, “Look Daddy there’s a car. Hey, there’s a dog. That car’s blue…there’s some people walking…look there’s another car…” And it went on like that for ages. She was interested in everything.

Somewhere along the line our interest wanes. But when you meet people who are still curious – they are always interesting. They can always tell you something you didn’t know. They have stories to tell and experiences to share; they are fascinating people to meet.

Curiosity is something to be cultivated.
