Ah...the smell of a new book.
There’s thrill and excitement and anticipation in that intoxicating ink and paper smell. This is a photo of the most recent stack of books I’ve worked my way through.
I am a freak about post-it notes - whenever I see an idea that intrigues me, a fact that astounds me, or a beautiful question that I want to spend more time thinking about, I slam a post-it note on the page with a scrawl about what delighted me. This is really a photo about my curiosity. This is what inspired this latest episode.
It’s about curiosity and books. But mostly about the life force that is curiosity. It is something that needs nurturing and protection because it is vulnerable.
So dip into this episode and burnish your curiosity, Pondercastronauts!
