Curiosity For The Sake Of It

I wrote Curiosity For The Sake Of It after having some thoughts on the life of Leonardo da Vinci depicted by Isaacson. I published this in Zagreb, Croatia.

The pursuit of an interest for no other reason than its pursuit should be encouraged. But such pursuits often get deemed a waste of time if they are not profitable. That’s sad. I don’t have an angle to monetise the reading of great literature. The latest pop nonfiction book on productivity, probably. But some things are best left to leisure. You don’t have to monetise your life. Some things flourish better away from the question of monetisation.
