How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
The only answer I can give to this question is: I didn't.
Wonder, for me, is really not something I cultivate so much as something that just happens. Mostly, it happens when I look at the sky.
There's that line in the Regina Spektor song "Oedipus"that goes "the sky'd be so big that it broke my soul." That's how I feel about it. I'm so blown away by the fact that we all share this great big blanket that I can't even handle it.
This effect is also multiplied by about a million when I actually get out of the city to see the stars.
