“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.” Socrates
The other morning, somehow Audrey got on the topic of how many people in the world might be taking a photograph at that particular moment while she was eating her breakfast. I told her that was a pretty deep thought, and then I said, “Don’t think too much like mommy does.”
To which she replied quite firmly, “I’m not thinking, I’m wondering.”
What a powerful distinction. To wonder- to be curious, to be filled with admiration, amazement, or awe.
On that note, I will be taking a break from my own thinking, away from my computer for my regular posting this week, but I’ll be back in a few days.
