I'm fully exercising my curiosity this week by exploring a new place I have been curious about for many years, Haida Gwaii BC. Haida Gwaii (meaning land of the Haida) is an archipelago off the coast of BC and considered to be a magical and sacred place. I arrived last night and just drove to the end of a road where I found a pristine place to camp right by the water. I am super excited to learn about the area and Haida traditions and history.
This post is the first in a series to sneak a peak at what you will find in my new book about Curiosity, which will be available in print and e-book this summer! I will send out a new teaser each week or two and pretty soon there will be info on how to order. the book. Curiosity is more than a buzzword in education and leadership. It’s a way of being that we all have inside us, and when we let it out it makes life richer and a lot more fun. It also allows us to be more creative and innovative which in today’s world will help us stand out in a crowd.
It’s happened to all of us…more than once. We get the question, “if you could be any animal would what you be?” (and I include birds, fish, etc in possible answers) Well, we may know what we want to be, but what are we really? I mean, it’s cool to be a jaguar or a lion, or it would be wonderful to be a horse but I think we all embody the spirit and character of some species other than human, and it’s different for all of us. I happen to be an albatross.
