I am not a sports fanatic, nor am I an athletic wonder. Yet, when I make space to be active, I find myself happiest outdoors with the sun warming my skin, the huge vistas from atop mountains stilling my restlessness, and the steady pace of the bicycle keeping my spaciness in check. When I first read today's prompt (How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?), I thought holy crap, here comes another Hallmark moment. But when I got over my snarky self, I realized that it is being outdoors in nature (yes, as trite and Hallmarky John Denver as that sounds) that cultivates a sense of wonder.
