About

The title of this blog is from a phrase that my parents used to say when I asked a question (oftentimes at the dinner table). The idea is that when you are wondering about something, you seize upon that fleeting “excited curiosity” and find out more now. If you don’t, the feeling will pass and you’ll have lost the opportunity to learn more about the universe. I decided that it was a good expression of what this blog is about, and what life should be about in general.

    My grandmother, a language teacher for many years used this phrase in her classroom with her students, and in her home with her family. I in turn use it with my own children as a homeschool mom.

    I cannot tell you how often the dictionary or an encyclopedia ended up on the dinner table because a question was posed that was not to go unanswered.

    “Do yourself a favor and learn all you can, then remember what you learn and you will prosper.” Proverbs
