Wonder

Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year? (Author: Jeffrey Davis)

I cultivate wonder when I am attentive to the world around me. When I am present and in the moment, I become aware of the amazing things and people I encounter. Art and journeling have kept me focused on finding the wonder in each day.

Some of the specific ways this year included:

  • reading poetry
  • listening to my patients’ breathing
  • looking at trees, clouds, and the sky and noticing how they change from hour to hour and day to day
  • choosing spiritual books and podcasts to listen to as I drive
  • listening to music

Trying to find beauty and joy in the world around me . I am many things, among them a quilter, a knitter, and an incessant reader. There is not enough time for them all, so I jump in between them as the mood hits me. Professionally - a rabbi; a hospice chaplain.
