Aristotle said: “philosophy begins in wonder."
It also ends in wonder. The ultimate way we relate to the world as something sacred is by renewing our sense of wonder.

Today while eating lunch at our regular Sunday lunch spot, we watched a mother dolphin fishing with her tiny baby. It appeared to me as though Mama was teaching baby to fish. At one point, Mama was a bit distracted and the baby headed directly for the navigational channel. When the mother noticed that, she streaked off to herd the baby back to safer waters, where they resumed swimming in tight circles. (I noticed the escaping baby before the dolphin did and, in the manner of mothers everywhere, my heart skipped beat.)
Unfortunately, I had left my camera in the car, so I didn't get a picture. Bummer.
