What is your Story... This is Mine...

Every person you come across is living a completely different life, hearing something deeper or more shallow, seeing something you see from an alternate angle. We are moving stories and we live through these tiny little moments of earlier chapters that have built up to become a powerful wave in our psyches, in our memories, in the way that we digest the world around us. And not just past chapters but present emotions and how tired we are, and how stressed and how happy and how sad. Then we make decisions and it rolls on and on and on.

What the Paralympics Can Teach Us All About Limitations

I dislike the rhetoric of pity that some people use when talking of Paralympians, like I dislike it when people speak of those with special needs. Sometimes this can be even more damaging than cruelty and discrimination and foul language. Ignorant people who talk of cripples and spastics can be dismissed, but pity can put often kindly meant limitations in the path of those who are even slightly different. 

Nurturing Curiosity

This is why the Curious in the title of my blog. It is my feeling that our curiosities can save us, earth us, elevate us and are such a very integral part of what makes us human. Children are naturally curious and delighted with everything they discover and we should not discourage this, but mimic them. Whoever said "Curiosity Killed the Cat" is a fool. In good times and bad it is one of the greatest joys to follow your intrigues, whatever they may be.
