Journey of Quilting + [life]

keeping the wonder...

when we spot something in the world that is unfamiliar to us, what do we do?

if we didn't have the correct bird book, we wouldn't know that what we caught a brief glimpse of was a native bird to our area, but rarely seen
a northern harrier

i did not take this amazing photograph!

I suppose we'd probably, later that night, look on the internet for the answer...

gone are the days when the wonder of something doesn't keep conversations going and a mystery of what you discovered and am searching out the answer for...

books used to be treasured this way... more so than they are now... technology has taken the place of that wonder... we can instantly know what something is...

I like the wonder... I like not knowing it instantly... there is something so special about talking about it throughout the day... with whomever you meet...
