capable of being

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.”

Goethe

the wonder of it all

“We need a renaissance of wonder. We need to renew, in our hearts and in our souls, the deathless dream, the eternal poetry, the perennial sense that life is miracle and magic.”

 E. Merrill Root

Wonder!

Some people have lost the desire to wonder, the ability to dream with the full reckless imagination.   The wonder of a sun setting over the sea as palm trees frame the golden hues in the skies.

The wonder of a warm summer day, a day that is lazy, a day that can kiss the worries good-bye is a day of wonder.

Wonder can awaken our dreams from a deep slumber.   Wonder can be the vision of a place not yet seen that beckons your arrival.   Wonder is asking what is beyond the furthest thing you can see.  

What awakens your soul?   What is wonder to you?
