a great gift this would be to anyone--a never-ending sense
of wonder! I've been pretty fortunate in life, for
my sense of wonder never has left me, and in many ways
it's much stronger now than it ever has been. I find
wonder in almost everything I see, and it certainly makes
this world a very special place when I can see the
fantastic in the things that so many others find to be
somewhat boring or drab. I consider this to be one
of my greatest gifts in life, and I consider myself very
fortunate that I have this gift.
can't remember ever being bored in recent years.
There's just too much to do, too much to see, too much to
enjoy. Even the down times, when I "don't have
anything to do," are very positive as times of rest
and recuperation for me.
I could wrap up a sense of wonder in a package, I'd do so
and go out into the world and give it away to everyone
that I met. I know that many people would appreciate
having this sense returned to them after so many years,
and I know that their lives would be richer for having
this sense as a vital part of who they are.
being childish is desirable, and if we could see the world
with the same wonder that a child sees the world with, our
lives couldn't help but be much more enjoyable and
hopeful, and we couldn't help but be stronger
people--stronger for our perspectives that keep us seeing
the beauty and wonder of life.
