“Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.” … E.B. White
I love life! Everyone who knows me knows this. The challenging times have reinforced in me an absolute delight in the moment-to-moment events that Life regularly plops onto my path. Now having said that; I believe that Life actually plops said marvellous, synchronistic moments into everyone’s journey … most of us have simply forgotten how to notice.
It seems to me that the daily presence of wonder has taken a backseat to the rush-rush and busyness of life … and has been rudely and unceremoniously dumped into the background … in favour of “reality”. From a young age we are taught that if we can’t see it, touch it, feel it or taste it … if it doesn’t fall within predetermined “Norms” … well then … it must not be real … and therefore it is hardly worth our while even noticing it! I’m sure that you can imagine what I have to say about that piece of propaganda!??!
I am amazed on a daily basis by the number of synchronistic ways through which Life shares Its ideas, wishes and support … everything from “perfectly timed” phone calls … to meeting the “perfect” stranger at… you guessed it … the “perfect” time … from finding the most marvelous ah-ha-moments-of-Understanding to guide my outside steps … to discovering the fabulous-unblemished-in-amazing-shape-leather-loveseat-at-the-curb for me to rest upon after taking aforementioned steps.
Life’s wonder is sprinkled liberally throughout our world and I have become an ardent and persistent pursuer of said bounty and beauty. I figure that the less than wonderful stuff is being thrown in our faces all of the time by the news media and well-meaning friends … but it takes a determined eye, ear and heart to see, hear and feel the gifts with which Life graces us. I love life and I love Life. Perky Polly, Sunshine Sue & I are having a blast meeting new friends, appreciating old friends, having mini-adventures of the Life-Inspired variety and dancing hand-in-hand with the great producer of wonder. We feel joy-filled and blessed to live and walk through a world where possibilities are waiting to jump out from behind every moment … BOO!! … Wow … there’s another one!
Arinaste and Joyful Journeying Everyone!
