Curiosity has self-interest that requires something of me. Something I have to attend to, like a puzzle to solve. It can be exhausting.

Wonder only asks that I open myself up to it. It speaks to my imagination and I get to participate in it. I don’t have to control it. That letting go seems like a better posture to embrace the day with. Going to try that today.
