When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement.
Take it into action! We invite you to try this fantastic exercise:
EXERCISE FOR CULTIVATING CURIOSITY
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND POINT IN ANY DIRECTION
When you open your eyes, what’s the first object you see? Is it a street sign? Is it a tree? Is it a photo of someone you love? Is it a sandwich? Whatever it might be, I ask you to be curious about it.
Start by asking yourself who, what, why, where, when, and how. Who made the street sign? Who first touched it, who cut its shape, who designed it, who decided what it means? What kind of tree is it? What do you think about the color of its leaves? What feeling does it inspire inside of you when you see it? Why do you have this photo of someone you love in a frame? Why are they so important to you? Where did you buy the bread for this sandwich? Where did the wheat grow that the farmer used to make the flour? When did you last think about farmers and the fact that our food grows from the ground? How do you feel when you focus on the specifics that make up the world around you? A poem exists in this list of wonders. All of these questions and particulars add up, and the sum is poetry.
