Of Wonder and Truth

It’s hard to get a way from a screen. Aren’t you reading this on one, right now?

But life – life is different than a screen. Better. Brighter. Louder.

Children play in fields. Balls bounce on concrete. Teachers write notes on whiteboards. Manuscripts and manifestos get scribbled on napkins with ball-point pens.

Dogs pant on back porches. Dads cut the grass while Moms bake dinner. Children run and dance and howl and sing.

Life.

We forget how simple and complex it is, how the earth spins and circles the heavens, how red-tailed hawks nest and call through the trees, how a little girl grows into a woman.

We forget to wonder.
