Weekly Photo Challenge: Wonder

Some reflections on wonder in pictures and words.

Wonder-ful Scotland

People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering. ~ St. Augustine

The wonder of artistic expression

Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life, learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. ~ Robert Fulghum

A New Wonder of the World - Petra

Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher; and philosophy begins in wonder. ~ Plato
