I like this idea of expressing curiosity. I think sometimes that societal "norms" have suppressed our natural curiosity, we only have to look at the way our kids behave - they learn so much by being curious, then as they get older and more mature (and perhaps self-conscious) it's so easy to push it aside. Your quote sums it up perfectly.
Thank you Morgan. I do think sometimes about the questions I would like to have asked, but this feels a little bit self-centred too. I don't think that at the age I was then I had the maturity or wisdom to ask, but I do wonder if, given the opportunity, would they have been willing teachers...? There would undoubtedly have been things for me to learn, but how might this have changed their end-of-life experience?
