PHILOMATH

FEEL-oh-math -- (n.) A lover of learning.


Arguably, the magic of childhood is that we have so much to learn -- there is so much to wonder about, so many questions, so many mysteries, so many possibilities. In this spirit, the world and life in it is joyful, it is something to love because it is full of possibility and newness. We grow old the moment we feel there is nothing left to learn; the world grows dark and dim, sparkling no longer with the NEW and the unknown. Philomaths are everywhere, at all ages. We can identify philomaths by that bright spark about them, alert and curious about the world, seeming always excited by the notion that life is full of the unknown -- and that the unknown is not to be feared but to be loved.
