22. Blue Tit (sense of wonder)


Tiny, tinted wonder, a bright flitting dart across the garden, how can something so small bring so much joy? Your beauty would be extravagant lunacy if arrived at purely by chance, and to me it is a Babel Fish giveaway of the nature of the artist who made you, as is the lift of my downcast heart that you cause.

21. Pearl Sky (sense of wonder)


With every colour available to you, you choose the softest oyster. An act of humility in an insanely neon world. And this whisper of colour shouts out the glory and wisdom of God, a shimmering that has me bending me to my knees.

N.B. from now on I’ll be putting the type of seeing we are looking at in brackets each day so we remember it.


18. Jumbo


Not a cloud floating in the blue beyond, and yet here is a gigantic bird of metal, held up by pure air. Like hearing a voice over a phone, this is something I will never quite grasp the mechanics of, and also something quite incredible. The ingenuity of humans teamed with the laws of the universe that were written millions of years before we could bang rocks together.
