Reverb 10Reverb 10 Prompt: Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?

2010 was a year of wonder for me, nurtured by:

Reading diversely, many more books, blogs, and articles than previous years and, more importantly, a much more varied group of viewpoints. Differing perspectives creates curiosity and changes or solidifies ideas and principles.

Writing expansively. Rather than just being business-focused, thoughts and passions kept safely inside are now exposed through this blog.

Raising teenage sons, which fires all sense of wonder! Sometimes frustrating, always challenging, and nothing more rewarding.

Exercising consistently, always good for the mind, body, and spirit. Running, in particular, clears my mind and energizes ideas.
