The Wealth of Curiosity

I am a new member interested in sharing my views of the world with those of us that still have a keen curiosity.  Years ago when I was assisting in raising my godson after his father passed away, I will never forget all of the questions that he would ask me, from why is the sky blue (a question I could not answer) to why different stores looked the way they did.  While driving with him,  I barely could travel one block in the car without him asking a question.  Until I realized that this was a way in which he was attaining information and learning about his surroundings, at first I found his questions a bit annoying.  But afterwards, I encouraged him to ask and seek information without giving up on the questions as a means for him to understand more about the world in which he lived. 

I believe his inquiring mind is a thing that so many of us lose with age.  It is a key that all of us possess as children but later lose as adults.  Perhaps the answer to many of the problems in current society is the openness that we can discover once more as adults in the seeking of new knowledge and information.  One tool to accomplish this goal is through the Internet, and more specifically, through blogs of this nature.
