What happened to wonder?
This lovely post by Katherine Mackenzie-Smith on TinyBuddha.com drove this point home for me. In it, she talks about how as children we are full of wonder, and we imagine that when we're older, and can do whatever we want, we'll be happy. But what happens is, you get to be an adult, and while you may not have homework or teachers to answer to, you have a whole other mantle of obligations, enough to make you long for a term paper. The point being that we lose track of the beauty of everyday life because we let it go, and let it get crowded out by ever-increasing problems and issues.
Wonder is a function of our perspective, our state of mind, and our state of being.
