December 4 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)
Hmmm....I don't think I did a very good job with that this year.
*consults dictionary to try and get some ideas going*
1. a person, thing, or event causing astonishment and admiration; marvel
2. the feeling aroused by something strange, unexpected, etc.
1. to be filled with wonder; marvel
2. to have curiosity, sometimes mingled with doubt
to have curiosity or doubt about
I marveled at the beauty of several natural places this year -- the big cat rescue in Eureka, the trees and the wolf rescue in Olympia, the Old Mill
Strange, unexpected, curiosity mingled with doubt -- that pretty much describes my experience of the Crescent.
I can't really say any of that was deliberate cultivation though, and I'm not sure I have a clear idea of how one would cultivate wonder. Maybe some of the other reverb10 entries have good ideas.....
