I enjoyed this post over at Story Warren, reminding me to use these glorious summer days to cultivate in myself and my children our infinite capacity for wonder.
“The world is fairly studded and strewn with pennies cast broadside by a generous hand. But- and this is the point- who gets excited by a mere penny? But if you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days.”
