Curiosity: A Sponge for Terror

Curiosity: A Sponge for Terror

Jun 15, 2023-- "And so I moved from hoping every morning to find myself waking up from a bad dream to realizing that this room and its contents were the only life I had. And this was the body I had to live it with. I started waking up ready to fully live this specific life and get acquainted with what was in many respects a new body every day. I started the day asking, what part of my body works today? What can I do with the part that works? That was thrilling to me: day planning on such a primitive level. As I settled into my new life and its particularities, curiosity replaced fear as my primary ground of being. I wanted to know every little detail about my world.

Darlene Cohen shares more in this powerful essay, about sorrow, spaciousness, pain, and the power of curiosity. (3183 reads)
