‘The possession of knowledge does not kill the sense of wonder and mystery. There is always more mystery’. Anais Nin
I have a thing about looking up.
Actually, all around.
You just never know what you’re going to see when you change your perspective.
Looking out and beyond as much as in and ‘up close’ often causes a sense of wonder, ‘a feeling of surprise and admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable’. The every-day world therefore can be a source of constant wonderment.
Wonder too incites desire and curiosity to know something, know it by site, smell and flesh as much as through the mind, logic and reasoning.
And so we find the paradox within wonder, for in the sensory rapture of not knowing, we are compelled to stretch out, inquire and discover.
Wonder.Meant. …that I was never bored.
Wonder.Meant …that I was always curious.
Wonder.Meant …that I could always look upon the world as a child does, wide-eyed.
Wonder.Meant …that the elusive question mark was never terrifying but rather a call to adventure, to learn and grow.
