Curiosity – The Longevity Factor!

Being Curious does make a difference in life!

Alexander Imich

“The compensation for dying is that I will
learn all the things I was not able to
learn here on earth” ~ Alexander Imich, 2014

Meet Alexander Imich. Yesterday was his birthday he’s 111 years old. Officially the oldest man in the world. He attributes his long life to his never-ending curious nature, in spite of all the adversity he has lived through. Read the excellent interview by David Luke of the Daily Grail here.

But wait a minute, as of this writing there are 65 individuals older than him. And they’re all women! Which begs the question – Are we (women) more curious than our opposite gender counterparts, or are we just better at surviving?

Something to ponder.

Hope your week started out well for you. Thank you for stopping by. A prayer of well-being for the safety and safe return to their homes to all the kidnapped girls in Africa.

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!”
