12/4/10 Reverb Writing Prompt #4: Wonder

Prompt: Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?


This is a difficult question. I feel that overall, I didn’t. This year was (and continues to be) a year of hardness, of facts, of chores. There was very little in the way of flights of fancy, hopes, dreams, or wonder.

That, perhaps, is the problem.

I need to spend more time outdoors, where I generally do find a sense of wonder. I need more hiking, more running, more camping, more sleeping under the stars.

The architect and I took a couple weekend trips this year (in fact, we just got back from one, which is why this is a day late), and although they were great (love a king-sized bed and cable TV), they weren’t wonderful.

I think I have a new goal for next year.
