boredom is a curious thing

“The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.”
– Dorothy Parker

I don’t remember the last time I was bored. I seriously cannot recall a moment of boredom in the past many years. Is it because I’m such an active person? Is it because I almost always have a phone, computer, book, or TV nearby to me? Is it because, like my Dad, I can nap just about anywhere?

I wonder what would happen if I created a space for boredom. A few hours with no activity, no audio stimulation, with nothing in particular to look at, nothing in particular to accomplish. I’d be curious to see what I’d get curious about.

Have you ever tried that?
