December 4 – Wonder
How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
My response: I didn't initially like this question-and this time it's not due to grumpiness. I thought about for a while and then went to the Reverb 10 website to peek at what some other participants wrote. So I am borrowing an idea.
I don't know that I necessarily "cultivated" a sense of wonder, but where I definitely felt its presence was during some traveling this year. In March I went to the Dominican Republic with my sister and it was beautiful. We went on a speed boat tour to Paradise Island and through the mangrove trees that grow from the coral out of the water, as well as did a bit of snorkeling-it was amazing!! I also feel a sense of wonder whenever I am at Lake of the Woods-it's so beautiful and relaxing!! Finally, over Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving) my husband and I took a road trip to Montreal and we were dazzled (yes I said dazzled) by the city! So that is how I cultivated or experienced wonder this past year!!
