My World

I have to say that I’m not a deep thinker. I don’t wonder how the universe came to be. I don’t wonder why I’m here. I don’t wonder about the meaning of life. To me, these are questions that don’t have an answer. 

I love sitting on my porch on a rainy day. I enjoy watching the leaves on the trees dance in the breeze. Standing on the beach feeling the ocean waves embrace me is magical. These moments make me smile and I am at peace. This is when I wonder about the beauty that the world gives me. 

It’s the small things that happen that make me wonder about all that is around me. It’s like reading a book that takes me to a different time and place. The talent that the writer has to magically take me away into their world with words. The painter that can take me to that moment of time with the strokes of a brush. It’s truly wondrous. 

What makes me wonder more are the things that people do. The good and the bad. These actions by people stir up the emotions for me, whether it makes me smile or brings me to tears.

I’m easily amused but complicated at the same time. Is that possible? Yes, it is. All of these things and many more put the sense of wonderment into my being. 

What do you wonder about? Are you a person of nature or a people watcher? I’m definitely a people watcher. I wonder what you are?

    I have several pieces in my world that make me both smile and fret. My grandson is one of them. He is exceptionally smart and responsive to language. So much so that I fear he will be an outcast. He is small for his age and not athletic at all. I fear he will be bullied for his lack of physical presence and because he uses “grown up” words, he might not fir in with his peer group. I’ve seen a lot of that through my teaching career. I love him deeply and want to see him thrive but as he gets older the gap between him and his peers will widen. His world will become complicated but ( I hope) wonderful.

      Your grandson I believe will be fine. He has such a wonderful supportive family. He especially has all the support he can have from you.

    I always wonder about the consequences of actions. Wondering if certain changes in the present will truly affect the future, and what events in the past have affected us here in the present.
