It’s strange where inspiration can come from sometimes…

We just received a Christmas card from my sister and her partner. On the front are a number of quotes from the poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, titled ‘I am Waiting’.

The line which really stood out for me goes, ‘…and I am waiting perpetually and forever a renaissance of wonder.’

So, I typed ‘perpetual renaissance’ into Google and the following webpage came up…

It’s an article by an English teacher posting on and really sums up what we’re trying to do with our kids, or that’s the plan anyway! It’s what you see in people all the time. It’s what you see at work. It’s what you hope isn’t happening to society but suspect it already has.

Don’t lose the wonder and inspiration of life.
