There is so much to discover in this world, so much to marvel. How miraculous is a spiderweb or shooting star? Writing, for me, is about allowing myself to be in that place where I wonder.

I found today's quote in a wonderful anthology called Staying Alive, edited by Neil Astley. (Thanks, Suzanne!)

"Poems come out of wonder, not out of knowing."

- Lucille Clifton
