Prompt: Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

So I guess this is the one that stopped me up, that constipated my writing these things.  And now that I'm sitting down to write it, I know why.

Wonder.  I don't know if I did cultivate a sense of wonder in my life this year.

Now, that's not true.  Now that I write that, I know that is not true at all.  Shame on me.

The wonder that I experienced this year is a wonder of myself.  That this year, I have taken the step to overcome all the mental resistance I've inherited from our culture to starting out on my own.  I still am amazed that I've decided to leave all this security behind.  I'm in awe of my ability to just leap, not knowing what will catch me, but knowing, that like Alice, there will be a bottom somewhere, and that place will be magical.

Although I'm starting to worry that all my posts are going to go the same.  That all I'm going to talk about is how this year I quit my job.  Which is a little half-assed, because I'm still working it, and haven't actually left yet.  I haven't actually hit the ground.  I'm still in mid-air.
