Curiouser and Curiouser – Day 253 – Unclaimed Reward

A few days ago I made treasure maps (the treasure was my story) and hid them in the library, as requested by Lucy.


The maps which told you how to find the stories were taken down that afternoon but not the stories. So I did them again and hid them better. Unfortunately yesterday they were taken down again (but the stories still remain). I was really disappointed- but not for my blog and not because no-one got to read the story. Then it finally dawned on me: I was sad because the whoever took them down wasn’t even a little bit curious about something called a “Library Treasure Map”. I am scared of people who aren’t curious about things (especially treasure), are they robots?

He froze time. Not literally of course, but he bred out the gene that produces curiosity and now nothing ever changes. No one wonders about their potential, no one really loves because they don’t really want to know about each other, and the music sounds the same because no one ever tries new beats. One day I found myself wondering why he did it, and I realised this was the beginning. I had the curiosity gene, I wondered if I could save us.

  1. I know I am a little (ok, a lot) slow, but today I thought I would see if the treasure was still there for the discovering. My friend and I used the clues (guided by your photo of “Radical Right” and photo of treasure map). We found a beautiful old wooden writing desk… couldn’t see a story, so hoping someone else has already discovered and enjoyed it. Although we returned empty handed, it was a fun mid-morning adventure. x

      1. ha ha, thats ok… I was just looking for inspiration on a boring day really. I have a treasure hunt for you too next time you are bored and can’t find a dinousaur on your site (VERY weird by the way)… tree lizard has friends… a koala and a wombat are lurking nearby. x
