This month’s theme? PRIMAL CURIOSITY.
In popular expression, curiosity tends to be depicted as a reserved, passive and intellectual sullen condition (see: curiosity emoji, Rodin’s Thinker, etc.). I’d like to challenge this notion of curiosity with my own experiences in creativity: how the process of asking important questions—in short, the condition of being curious—can also be driven by our most physical, active, emotional and primal selves.
Jaed Coffin is a writer from Brunswick, Maine, and an assistant professor of creative writing at the University of New Hampshire. His first book, A Chant to Soothe Wild Elephants, is about the summer he spent as a Buddhist monk in his mother’s village in Thailand. His forthcoming book, Roughhouse Friday, is about the year he won the middleweight title of a barroom boxing show in Juneau, Alaska. Jaed has published over sixty articles, essays and stories with a variety of national publications, and has been a featured storyteller for Moth Radio Hour.
