A Sense of Wonder . . .

"If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantments of later years, the sterile preoccupation with things artificial, the alienation from the sources of our strength .. " - Rachel Carson (The Sense of Wonder)

Rachel Carson's book - The Sense of Wonder - shaped how I approached raising my own two boys and later in life my perspective as an educator. Now, as a Grandmother, it is my hope that I am able to be that same good fairy christening my grandchildren with an indestructible sense of wonder.
