the word ‘curiosity’ means a strong desire to know or learn something. the word and what it implies always feels wild and unbridled; adventurous; free-spirited. which is why it’s ironic that the word comes from the old french ‘curios; which comes from the latin ‘curiosus’ - which is ‘careful’; which comes from cura - ‘care’. which means that curiosity is actually a complex, cognitive process.
what if we were all mindful, careful about what we were curious about? would we explore, learn, connect, or make things happen differently?
