Weekword: Wonder

This lovely word, courtesy of my namesake over at Sow and Sew, makes me think of children in mittens and scarves watching fireworks and writing their names with sparklers; and star-gazing with my uncle (who has made this an artform) at Death Valley and, most recently, in Sydney; and of how I felt when I found out how chalk was formed.

It is things too dizzying and large to comprehend, whether it be due to their beauty, their size, their history or any other variable you can think of.

Mostly, though, it made me think of this song, which I have not heard for a long time but which reminds me of a very pleasant time in my life and some of my favourite people, as well as being a really great song. Enjoy.
