January Journal of Wonder
I choose wonder instead of worry.
I marvel at pomegranate seeds with their rich red color and bright flavor hidden inside tough skin. Who discovered the fruit could be opened and the seeds harvested?
I am astonished by how a deep breath of cold air refreshes body and spirit.
I marvel at the minds of Emily Dickinson and Mary Oliver.
I wonder if I can knit from joy and from stash - not worrying about oldest, newest, or anything in between.
I wonder how cardinals and chickadees stay warm on bitter cold days.
I am astonished to see three red-breasted nuthatches instead of two. How did I miss the third one?
I wonder what would happen if I watched the weather from my window instead of a screen.
I wonder how the birds will keep warm in today's polar vortex.
I marvel at the possibility of a blank page.
I wonder what would happen if we all just made a cup of tea and watched the sun set.
