A Timeless sense of wonder

Originally posted on March 25 2008

"If I had the influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantment of later years, sterile preoccupations with things that are artificial, the alienation from the sources of our strength."

- Rachel Carson, *The Sense of Wonder*

The fairy that Rachel Carson talks about must have been at my cradle. I have never needed substances to be utterly entranced and distracted by the incredible glory of a blossoming dandelion.

An old hippie friend once told me that I was "A naturally stoned person". So help me Goddess, it was meant as a compliment. I guess the shower of fairy dust did it.

I feel so sorry for children who live far removed from Nature. As Black Elk ( I think it was him) said: It is easy to forget the Great Spirit when you live away from his [sic] works. Or something very close.

Goddess, Great Spirit, or as Dylan Thomas called it: The Force that through the green fuse drives the flower", it is all One to me.

The Western world just celebrated Easter, the latest version of a god descending into the underworld and re-emerging.

I see the Resurrection in every blade of grass, in every flower.

Thanks is given daily for the incredible privilege of being allowed to live in paradise. To Whom it may concern.
