Wonder eludes being pinned down and evades our recognizing that we're in its midst. Yet, based on this middle-aged writer's experiences, research, and explorations, wonder may turn out to be the most important emotional experience for us adults to cultivate. Especially if we're in creative fields and have problems with motivation, novelty, follow-through, collaboration, or project completion. Wonder - like happiness and compassion - can be practiced and re-invited into our work and personal lives. This blog aims to share solid ideas related to just that. See you in the woods.
