Never Stop Exploring

“In any field, find the strangest thing and then explore it.” 
― John Archibald Wheeler

My daughter's eyes are bright and curious.

All things are new for her. The rain and fog, the caterpillar and horse, the leaves and grass and sticks and water.

She opens cupboards, overturns boxes, grabs items off shelves, shoves found objects in her mouth.

All five senses are alert and tuned. Sight, sound, smell, taste, touch.

I am learning curiosity from my children. They are guides to imagination, the long-forgotten art of innocently urgent exploration. My children foster wonder in my life and invite me to explore this world alongside them. We are born adventurers and explorers, but something gets lost along the way.

Never stop exploring. Become a lifelong learnerEvery situation, conversation, and person you encounter is an opportunity for growth.
