All in Curiosity

Break Your Patterns...

I just sometimes think we need to shock our systems, jolt our brains out of their comfy human paths which we all amble along everyday. Sometimes this can be by hearing something different, reading something different, trying to comprehend a person totally different to you. Go watch a Sci Fi film even if you hate it etc etc. I believe pushing out of those - to use a cliche - "comfort zones" can improve our creative and empathetic brains and help us to be better people.

Flaunt It Up, Buttercup

Mel Brooks wrote in his 1968 film, The Producer's, "If you've got it, flaunt it" in a song that was very much about showing-off your body and I have no problem with that. Even though remnants of my ancestors' British reserve occasionally cringes at anyone flaunting anything, something I consciously squash - I am all for the boldness and defiance of the flaunt. Go forth and flaunt yourself people, but let's leave the judgemental sexism behind and reclaim the word for our bodies, our minds, our achievements and our souls. There's nothing wrong with showing off things we are proud of, but let's not assume please that every woman in a fucking bikini is flaunting her ass/arse for your pleasure and attention.

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.
