INQUIRY is curiosity in action. 

Inquiry is the practice of standing in the place of "I Don't Know," with a eager willingness to take it from there.   It is the application of questions to everything in you and around you: Why do things have to be this way? How are things, really? What does my dog really look like? Is there a shade of green that better evokes the feeling of hopefulness? What words can I use to express what I really mean? Does a darker plum taste better than a lighter plum? I wonder what would happen if.....

Careful viewers may notice that the "tree" in the image is actually a neuron - a brain cell - and it is sucking in questions at its roots, then growing leaves with eyes in them so as to take a look for answers. The cat is a curious visitor, perhaps wondering what its going to take to get closer to the bird...he'll have to climb the tree of inquiry to find out!  Like the cat, the creator's curiosity may get her into trouble now and again, but it will also open the world to her and give her the ability to leap out of seeming dead ends, slink through too-small spaces, and sniff out the most interesting unexplored territories.

“The inquiry of truth, which is the love-making, or the wooing of it, the knowledge of truth, which is the presence of it, and the belief of truth, which is the enjoying of it, is the sovereign good of human nature.”  ― Francis Bacon
