Alphabet Soup Challenge  Letter W – Wonder

I’m taking part in the Alphabet Soup challenge, Hosted by Cathy Lynn Brooks. It has nothing to do with Soup. It was just a funny name  Cathy made up to explain an event that requires bloggers to use every letter of the alphabet in random order to inspire daily posting.

“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us the less taste we shall have for the destruction of our race. Wonder and humility are wholesome emotions, and they do not exist side by side with a lust for destruction.

{Speech accepting the John Burroughs Medal}”
