Are you curious?

“it’s difficult to be curious and unhappy at the same time”

I came across this quote this morning and had to write it in my notebook.  These days I find that I am very curious.  I curious about the connections and science of food and health.  I am curious about wool and knitting and how simple it is to take two stitches (knit and purl) and make amazing things.  I am curious about meditation and yoga and Pilates and simple movements that can lead to good changes.  I am curious about writing and authors and the whole process of putting words on paper.  And best of all, watching our #tinyperson has renewed my curiosity about early development and learning.  Are you curious?  Do you seen that connection between curiosity and happiness?

Three on Thursday – quotes

Well, we made it – 30 days of posting. It was great fun. Here are 3 quotes that I have scribbled in my journal this month.

“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.” – Gabriel García Márquez

“I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.” ― Bob Goff, Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World

“What you and I need is usually not a brand-new teaching. Brand-new truths are probably not truths. What we need are reminders about the greatness of the old truths. We need someone to say an old truth in a fresh way. Or sometimes, just to say it.” ― John Piper, The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent
