How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
I must admit I was confused by this prompt. I’ve been mulling it over all day long. How have I promoted wonder in my life this year? I was stumped. Then I realized that I wasn’t entirely sure what “wonder” was, so I looked it up:
Won der, noun, something strange and surprising; a cause of surprise, astonishment, or admiration; the emotion excited by what is strange and surprising; a feeling of surprised or puzzled interest, sometimes tinged with admiration.
As I’m sure some of you know, CSU Monterey Bay’s campus is located on Fort Ord. The fort was closed in September of 1994 and some of the buildings were remodeled for the campus. However a lot of the buildings were simply boarded up and left as they were twelve years ago.
Many of the students, including myself, have explored these old buildings. Here we call it “Ording.”
