Seth Godin has a killer video on his blog this week about curiosity. Finally, after all these years knowing there was something odd about me, it appears my freakish curiosity puts me in good company. I nearly wept. This explains a lot. Like why I drove across the country and back when I was nineteen. Or why I picked up and moved to Atlanta with no job twelve years ago, just because I was sick and tired of being cold half the year, and other things that most people thought were scary or nutty. And it's true what Seth said... staying put scared me way more than taking risks.
In fact, what's really funny is if you look at this baby picture of me, and you notice the look on my face... it's as if I'm saying, "Did you say cheese? What kind of cheese?" I guess I was curious, even then.
