Balancing cynicism and wonder is an ongoing feature of my inner life. Today wonder is winning.
It's another misty, green, grey day in Washington. But this one is amazing, somehow unlike the the 20,000 just like that have already come and gone.The snow is almost completely gone, the plants have stretched out and remembered how to stand up straight after weeks of hunched survival. It feels good to be outside. The air is cool but welcoming and it's not a bit cold.
It's also perfect weather for catching up on some reading while being comfy and cozy indoors with a cup of tea.
I'm not a raving Terry Pratchett fan but last year I became acquainted with his not-quite-Christmas story, The Hogfather, and our whole family really loves it.
Death is a really wonderful character and he says this about us;
"HUMAN BEINGS MAKE LIFE SO INTERESTING. DO YOU KNOW, THAT IN A UNIVERSE SO FULL OF WONDER, THEY HAVE MANAGED TO INVENT BOREDOM."
When you stop to consider that, it really is quite a feat. Hope you all are finding more wonder than boredom.
