A Sense of Wonder

Did you see that moon coming up tonight??? WOW!!! I am truly in awe of the miracles of everyday life. That big orange ball popping up from the horizon reminds me that we are also floating thru space on a ball---a ball that is capable of supporting life, lucky for us!! We need to take care of our "ball".

"If I had influence with the good fairy, I would ask that her gift to each child be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life."
--Rachel Carson--

It is beautiful isn't it? Something so magical so humbling about the night sky. Great quote.

I was just writing about that moon, Robin. It was as clear as a bell. I noted on Susan Branch's calendar that it was the "Wolf Moon".

No, no, no! Worm Moon! (sorry)

It was beautiful
and it was free
as are those who
gaze upon it

Great quote about keeping a child's sense of wonder. I am trying to instill that in myself all the time. And opening all the senses to the beauty around us will sustain that magic (and attract those good fairies)
