Time Out for Art ~ Curiosity and little girls

Curious by Penny L Howe, 2013


There was a little girl who just had to know,
about every little thing, everywhere she’d go!
Girls need to understand things
the Why, the How, the Who,
little girls are curious – it’s just what we do!
Growing up to be mysterious
or so it seems to men.
The truth is we stay curious,
the What, the Where, the When!
living life and loving
the things we do the best,
Well, and staying curious
for knowledge is our quest!
My case I therefore rest!

“Go Girls!”

Today is Thursday so it’s Time Out for Art over at Zebra Designs and Destinations! I drew a curious little girl and wrote a poem to go with it! I hope you enjoy, thank you!

  1. I am happy to see that, going back 6 years, my alter ego had as little idea about the working of a lady’s mind as I have today.
    Although I do know one thing about you, sweet Penny, that I will never tell anyone.
    Your poem is fabulous, of course, and full of truth, but that is no secret, your writing always is.
    Love and hugs

    • Hi Mary, thank you and welcome! It was fun. Just a little sketch I haven’t done any serious drawing in a long time, but Lisa has inspired me to think on doing some. (I was a portrait artist as a young adult when my children were young – my way of staying at home with them while earning a living as a single mom!) But I’m discovering how much I enjoyed drawing for the pleasure of it.

    • Hi Robyn. We are still little girls at heart aren’t we? I have excellent memories of my mom as she grew older, still loving to giggle, take walks and pick wildflowers (and watch her favorite cartoons)! Thank you, they were fun to create! Much love to you most dearest of friends, xo

  2. That be me! I was always a curious kid & asked 50 million questions. My siblings called me nosy Rosy. I called myself curious & inquisitive!
