The Presence of Wonder

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”

William Blake



The beginning of wisdom is the same as its attainment: “Wonder.”

The truest statement in the world is “You never know.”

There is always something to evoke wonder, to wonder about, because this world, this life, this universe, this reality, is far more than the sum of its parts.  Even the slightest detail contains much more. The overwhelming awe and wonder we feel, teach us more than we can ever attain or come to know of things.  In the presence of wonder, the head has no answers and the heart has no questions.

Richard Wagamese


As we move into 2018, may we all evoke a deep sense of wonder, awe and presence in our daily life.

Thank you to my beautiful friends on WordPress for all your support and love in 2017.  Thank you for your beautiful words and creative posts that have inspired me throughout the year.

May your Christmas be filled with love and nurturing for one another.  I look forward to sharing 2018 with you, as we continue this journey of discovery.

Love and abundance to everyone during this holiday season  🙂
