My mother has told me stories about how curious I was as a child. I don’t know if I was born this way or if this curiosity was mostly nurtured. I guess that’s sort of a what-came-first-the-chicken-or-the-egg type of question. I do know that mom got me going in the right direction by encouraging me to look and listen and ask questions. And for that, I owe her nearly everything.
In my last post, “Overthinking: A Nuanced Discussion,” I wrote about critical thinking and several related issues. In this one, I’d like to discuss curiosity, the engine that drives us to ask more questions and become better thinkers.
Curiosity motivates us, keeps us alive and fresh and exploring. I would even argue that those who hunger to examine and grow intellectually are happier and thus…

I love with all my heart
I use my thoughtful head
I reach for goodness from the moment
I get out of bed
Until at night I wish

Another month delayed will be
Before a single hope of

To even slightly circumstance
Better myself to try,
After which the new account
Of automatic pay
I had to have to get the phone
Will even function out this way
Took more than was agreed
And took it early too
And on my perfect credit
Put a mark for all to view
But do you think that my best friend
No, chose this time to denigrate
Even my poetry
Nobody naturally smiles
Twenty four hours long

Not Buying Into The ‘Junk’ Energy!
A lot of us are getting pretty good at ‘blame shifting’, or ‘negative focus shifting’. When we desperately need a person, group or object to focus our anger out onto. Politics, social injustice, right through to bad service at the supermarket can trigger these negative feelings and even serve as a current target. A target to vent out our built up negative energy. This negative energy doesn’t necessarily make us bad people, but simply the unconscious carriers of directionless ‘junk’ energy.
Welcome to my blog. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and I hope I can help you choose your next book.
I live through books, I love a good story that makes me travel without actually leaving my home.
