But it turns out I’m not a cat, and curiosity has helped keep me alive!
It’s the way with most humans, I think. With humanity as a whole for sure. All our progress, all our great achievements. None of that would have happened if we as a race weren’t extremely, fundamentally, beautifully curious.
As for myself, during my darkest hours, when I struggle to see the point of anything in this crazy world, I only have to be reminded of all the beauty there is to be seen or of all that is still out there waiting to be discovered and understood and I feel better, at least for a while.
I think that’s part of why I eventually found myself drawn to creating art. To paint a landscape or to write a story is to say hey, look at what wonders exist! Look at what could exist, if only you look for it!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t shy away from the darkness and pain that are all too common in this world, but I try to highlight the beauty and kindness that make it tolerable. Because it truly is a beautiful world that I’m only just starting to discover.
Hi I’m Alex and this is my blog! I hope that I can inspire curiosity and creativity in others, or at the very least entertain for a while.
See you later!
