6th November - Curiosity
Today I am curious about everything I see.
Today I look at each thing I encounter as though I have never seen it before. I see the smallest detail in the petals of a tiny flower, in the swirls of food on a dirty dish, in the rippling sheets on my unmade bed. I allow my curiosity its freedom.
When I was younger, my parents and teachers and even other children belittled me for asking questions. "Everybody knows that", said the kids. "You ask too many questions", said the adults. So I stopped asking questions of others and then I stopped asking myself.
Today I ask, "Why?" And I listen for the answers.
