Everything is incredible

Winter green.  (Wax myrtle in the woods.)
Winter green. (Wax myrtle in the woods.)

Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement.  Get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted.  Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually.  To be spiritual is to be amazed.

~ Abraham Joshua Heschel

Robin and her husband are in the midst of renovating the house and property they refer to as the Wabi-Sabi Ranch, 35 acres that include marsh, a dock on a tidal creek, meadows, and woodlands.

  1. Whenever I hear of a person living in “radical amazement” I so want that! Actually, sometimes I do live in radical amazement. It’s those times when stress or the blues take over that “radical amazement” seems like a faraway country or a bad rock-n-roll band.


    1. A bad rock-n-roll band? lol! That would be a good name for such a band. I know what you mean, Kathy. There are days when radical amazement seems to be the most natural thing in the world, and everything truly is incredible. And then there are days when it disappears, and I wonder if the experiences of radical amazement are real.


Comments are delightful and always appreciated. I will respond when I can (life is keeping me busy!), and/or come around to visit you at your place soon. Thank you!
