On the way to the play, we stopped to look at the stars.
And as usual,
I felt in awe.
And then I felt even deeper in awe at this capacity we have to
be in awe about something.
Then I became even more awestruck
at the thought that I was,
in some small way,
a part of that
which I was in awe about.
And this feeling went on
and on . . . . .
My space chums got a word for it:
Because at the point you can comprehend how
incomprehensible it all is,
you're about as smart as you need to be.
Suddenly I burst into song:
"Awe, sweet mystery of life,
at last I've found thee."
And I felt so good inside, and my heart felt so full,
I decided I would set time aside each day to do awe-robics.
Because at the moment you are most in awe of all there is
about life that you don't understand,
you are closer to understanding it all
than at any other time.
In a few days, we will embark on our Days of Awe, the opportunity for us as a people, in community, to set aside time for our own awe-robics!
