60 Seconds For Time Out Tuesday: Walking In Wonder.
by Diane Wyzga | October 6, 2020 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
I remember a week-long hike with Alan in the autumn of that year on the Appalachian Trail as it wound its way through Virginia. In the beginning the watching was all large landscape and vistas. Over time the eye sought out the smaller and then smaller wonders: a decomposing log, the color of a fallen leaf, the chirp of a bird, a pile of feathers that stood witness to an owl hunting, the smell of fog, and so on.
What my partner Alan and I felt was a sense of the mysterious, a lack of words in the presence of something larger. I’ve never forgotten that sense of awe as we slowed from hiking to ambling to pausing. I remember feeling calm, ease, tranquil as we stood together in wonder – how each and every leaf, blade of grass, ray of sunlight was its very own individual creation.
I’ve come to learn that there are no duplicates in nature. All nature asks of us is to feel the wonder so we can bring it home to our own well-being.
Question: What could walking in wonder do for your well-being?
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic. Speaking of magic, would you share a nice rating/review on Apple Podcasts and when you come back bring your friends and rellies.
