I’ve been thinking about curiosity lately. I think of myself as a curious person and in this age of information at the click of a button, I can’t help but wander down many paths as one question leads to another. Last night, I listened to Neil Degrasse Tyson’s podcast, Star Talk, and Joe Rogan was the guest. Yes, that Joe Rogan. The actor, stand-up comedian and once host of Fear Factor. I thought that he seemed like a strange choice for a guest on a podcast about space hosted by an astrophysicist. Turns out that Joe Rogan is a renaissance man with an interest in space, anthropology, mixed martial arts and an overall thirst for knowledge. He has his own podcast, too.
What makes Joe Rogan so curious? He says that as a comedian he naturally has to be curious and observant. It’s part of his job. This made me think of me and my little blog. I feel this space pushes me to be more observant and to search out interesting stories and recipes. For you and for me. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all of the information coming at me, though, and that’s ok, too. Pick your rabbit hole and follow as long as you like. There’s always something interesting out there that has the ability to grip you.
I don’t know if a fruit crumble gets to you as much as it gets to me, but I can’t stop making them. I first saw this fruit combination over at Completely Delicious and I thought it sounded delicious. I went to the market to see what fruit looked best and wouldn’t you know it, the plums and raspberries were beautiful. They blend together in sweet tart harmony. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and thank me later.
