There is no other avenue to cultivating creative work aside from impassioned curiosity.
I have a theory about cats.
Have you ever wondered how cats just seem so content sitting around most of the day?
I never used to be a cat person, but I have grown to appreciate them because they are so curious. When I was staying with my cousin during my recent trip to Canada, his cat wandered into my room and proceeded to stick his head into my travel tote. Sydney snooped around for a couple minutes and then jumped up on the window sill to just stare out the window for what seemed like eons.
