Wonder why wondering’s so wonderful? Whenever I venture into the wetlands or woodlands outside the man-made trappings of our urban landscape, I am astonished how quickly the stress and worry of day to day life is diluted and soon washed away by the absolute wonder inspired by the Earth’s natural world. While exploring the cyclical movement of eddying waters, I’ll take note of the similarly falling leaves. Leaf buds nourished by the compost of their fallen ancestors, then quenched by the winter melts, are soon bursting in spring. Sunlight now filtered through their verdigris veins, bringing vitality and growth through the warmth of summer splendor. Then spiraling down again, in autumn’s colorful grandeur. Magical, mysterious Mother Nature.
