I wonder what you wonder about.
It’s interesting, what decisions seem surprisingly momentous. Like what to title a new blog. I know what I’ll be doing…pondering on paper …musing in public …reflecting on new experiences. I see what this blog can do for me.
But why did the choice of title seem momentous to me? Because I hope it does something for each reader. I’d like us to go somewhere together.
Hey! That’s a lot like community development, which is something I’m supposed to be working on. Where do we want to go, together? Can’t do community work without community.
I would like to think that in our communities, we would like to go forward. I hope that somehow we haven’t given up on progress. I can’t fathom that we think we are done, that we have arrived. Goodness, there is still work to be done. And is our current momentum taking us where we want to go? How can we think ourselves forward? Isn’t Wisconsin’s state motto “Forward”?
I wonder what you wonder about, because I wonder a LOT. I hope you will let me know what sparked wonder in you. I invite you wonder (verb): to speculate, to marvel and be surprised, together, with me.
I am going to start with my recent trip to Sweden, for the Sustainable Sweden tour. Will you come to Sweden with me?
