Default I Wonder

Reading through the Earth Path by Starhawk I am reminded of the sacred dimension of wonderment and curiosity.

Every day I find myself running for a reference book or some source to help me answer a question or two - usually about moth or plant species, how to encourage a specific plant to thrive, or similar.

Every day I have so many "I Wonders?" it's crazy!
But, I do believe curiosity and wonderment and enchantment are quintessential elements of our magical path.

So...what do you wonder about? Let's keep this thread going with as many "I wonders??" as we can.


Today, I Wonder:

Why was the Oriole so vocal and now so quiet?

Does the Pleurisy Root need more sunshine or what?

Do I REALLY NEED to simmer my rosebead mush for 3 days, or can I start forming them tomorrow?
If I think I might be Lemurian, does that make me technically crazy?



YOU??

I wonder if the House Wren is *just* really trying to kill/eat the bluebird babies or here to help me understand some things, spiritually.

I wonder at times why it is darker before the dawn and how does that cross over into my spiritual and physical life.

I seem to have lost most of my wonder in the world. I was thinking about this last week.

Depression.

I wonder... so many things. I wonder why adepts are so silent and the foolish so loud. I wonder why, sometimes, in the azure sky I can hear the gods whispering. I wonder what my life will be in five years, and what it is now. I wonder, I wonder, I wonder...
