The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. – Albert Einstein
One of my most favourite things about being a mom is living vicariously through my daughter as she experiences LIFE for the first time. My baby girl has recently learned to walk and taking her out and about to explore is a brilliant adventure for both of us. My Amelia stops to pick at the furry fungus growing on the wall, she inspects a piece of chewing gum squished into the pavement, she grabs at a crumpled piece of brown paper and veers suspiciously away from a crack in the pavement. The car headlights are hysterically exciting, red buses are awe invoking and my little lovely squeals with delight when a pigeon crosses her path. All people, from joggers and bankers to children and their hyper-vigilant parents, are worth a stare and a think. Wondering off in random directions is of no consequence – as if LIFE is too wondrous to miss out on.
Through the passion and curiosity of my little girl, life’s magic and mystery becomes beautifully tangible. Words cannot describe.
Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly. – Arnold Edinborough
