a sense of wonder

“If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.”

— Rachel Carson

If there is a good fairy on the job for christening the new years as they are born, I’d ask that she put that sense of wonder into all of us this year, gently transforming some of the insanity of our culture with true awareness of the miracles forever blossoming around us, sprinkling a little fairy dust on all our doings so that every action is hallowed by our focused attention and contains the potential for joy, and gladdening all of our hearts in the process.

It’s 2010, y’all.  How about that?
