Wonder and humility

“It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility.”

Rachel Carson

  1. The art of wondering: there are actually experts for this – children!
    They live right in the centre of the wonder of existence, enjoying standing in the rain as much as in the sun, the sound of a dripping tap as much as the sea, and the most mundane things can bring a smile to their face.
    In a certain way, children are the greatest “teachers” for many things in life IMHO, e.g. living in the moment, belly breathing, perfect posture, enjoying simplicity, etc.
    But I’m am digressing here, sorry…

    Anyway, another nice series here!
