If one word could act as a standard of conduct for one's entire life, perhaps it would be thoughtfulness. - Confucius
Does it arrive as our minds surge and focus?
Will it help to stop and look and listen?
What if we act without expectation?
How does thoughtfulness reciprocate?
Where does marvel fit?
Elizabeth Gilbert references the poet, Jack Gilbert and writes, "He seemed to live in a state of uninterrupted marvel. He didn't teach how to write poetry but why: because of delight. Because of stubborn gladness. He told them they must live their most creative lives as means of fighting back against the ruthless furnace of this world."
Stay thoughtful, ask questions, and marvel at nature's reminders.
