October Journal of Wonder
What would happen is we all made a cup of tea and read a poem?
From Tracy K. Smith's Wade in the Water : "What is the soul allowed to keep?" (poem - Landscape)
I wonder how to answer this question - the feel of the wind, the mauve at sunset, the moments with dear ones, . . .
I wonder what sort of shawl this yarn wants to be? I wonder about creating my own design.
Why do the birds lift my spirits? How shall I care for them?
What will become of scraps of paper and yarns when I am gone?
I wonder if my Montana niece has ever tasted semmel (the family hard roll)?
I wonder what word I will choose for 2020?
What do I choose to attend to? How does my attention affect the way I see a blue October sky?
Where are the chickadees? Am I seeing fewer birds or is it the power of suggestion from reading articles?
Why is diversity so disconcerting to some?
I wonder what I could learn from the leaves? Perhaps letting go is as important as holding on.
I wonder if it is possible to outgrow friendships? or do they just change?
I wonder why I've only now learned that peppermint oil is a balm for some mild tension headaches.
I wonder when I will see the first measurable snowfall.
Although I am a little late to the party, I'm linking with Juliann of Chasing Stories to post October's Journal of Wonder. And into November we go.
