This Question of the Week is all about curiosity. About whether you are the: â€œof course, come on, letâ€™s open this box and look whatâ€™s insideâ€, or rather the â€œwell, hmmmm, letâ€™s wait a bit and reflect what the consequences would beâ€ type? Are you curious enough to just try everything before thinking what could/would happen? Or are you cautious, treading carefully in life and in your profession? Personally I am the first type. The curious type. I almost never think of the consequences before trying something new (and I paid high prices for it, I can tell you, not only financially). So come on, tell us: would you open Pandoraâ€™s box? (Today the phrase "to open Pandora's box" means to perform an action that may seem small or innocent, but that turns out to have far-reaching consequences). (Source: Wikipedia) (In classical Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on Earth. Zeus ordered Hephaestus to create her. So he did, using water and earth). (Source: Wikipedia). Ha! Pandora was a clay woman!! (Source: Evelyne) Evelyne
My today's question has something to do with our last weeks discussion. Some of your responses, and some of my recent experiences, made me think. We said that we should let children be and stay curious, to not always tell them "don't do this - don't do that". That I got a few rebukes from different persons recently, just because I'am still a curious "child" sometimes, made me a bit angry. Why should we always behave like well programmed robots? Don't we want sometimes just yell, laugh out loud, jump around, hug people, touch things (I didn't forget!), express joy or just be funny? I myself got the most recent rebuke on the night flight from J.F.K. to Zurich/Switzerland: I couldn't sleep, so I scanned the movies and found - tataaa!- FLUBBER, starring Robin Williams. Boy, I was laughing so hard that the flight attendant told me to let other people, pleeeease, sleep..... So come on, tell us a story where you were feeling and acting like a child and enjoyed it! If it has to do with clay, so much the better... Evelyne
