Curiosity Counts! Hello and welcome! This time of year in particular gets me thinking about how to make the most of the long summer days. Like, what new places could I go to and explore? Who could I catch up with? Are there things I could get on with and do better during the longer days? I guess I would describe myself as a naturally curious person, particularly about understanding myself, others and the world. Previously, as a school teacher, I was intrigued by the children who had the courage to ask questions - sometimes BIG, BOLD questions! Other times, especially with some younger children, I had to support them to develop the skill of asking questions. Yet there were some very quiet children in the class, who rarely questioned nor challenged anything and absorbed most information like sponges! Great to be able to retain information, although passivity could create a complacent approach to life.
