Passionately Curious

I love this Einstein quote Did you know that Einstein's brain was removed at autopsy and kept by the Doctor who performed said procedure? This urban myth is true according to one of the Christmas gifts:-)

Passionately curious is not a bad way to be I think - although I wouldn't compare myself - or any one of us - to Einstein I do think the Kirby and Boyd family members are intensely interested in many and varied things and can be curious about most - which is why we all end up being able to talk so much. Einstein may have been able to channel his curiosity - whereas I am probably more of a grazer in that respect - which becomes a trivia collector.

Loved today's newspaper article about the problem the Germans are having with elderly drug users - people who started using drugs in the 1960s and 1970s and have continued - there are a number of 60 and 70 year olds who are being prosecuted for dealing, taking up spaces on drug rehabilitation programmes and methadone programmes. This is causing concerns for the German police and health authorities.

You can find more of the artistic quotes here. I also quite like "Bad decisions make good stories"

Today has been momentous for at least one of us. Adrian has booked a one way fare to Melbourne and is set to follow the next stage of his passionately curious life from July!
