Wonder: A Morning of Seeing and Hearing

Good Morning, God!

Well, I’ve done three runs and three blogs here in Tucson. This morning I ran for a bit over two miles — stopping for photos. I cannot resist stopping to see! The world is such a lovely place, God.

And while I jogged along I listened to Katy Payne being interviewed on Krista Tippet’s podcast, On Being. Katy Payne has written a book on listening to elephants called Silent Thunder. She was the first to notice that elephants make infrasonic sounds. I think she was also the first to realize that humpback whales are singers. She said her discovers came in part because she never let go of being a child. I loved that!

Then I came back and drove my grandson Mark to school — listening to his plans for the day and for the week. He leaves on Thursday to be an alternate in the National Science Olympiad. Next I gave our daughter Sandy a hug as she left to do tutoring. And finally I ate breakfast on the lanai while chatting with our son (in-law) Dave.

The conversation with Dave was a continuation of our talk last night after dinner. I think I am finally understanding what he does, God. And I am very impressed by it — even if I can’t articulate it. Still, I do have a sense of how very much he knows. And how as a consultant one of his tasks is to see how processes and companies can be brought together for even better outcomes.

I loved listening to him — not that I was really learning — but I was at least tagging along on a journey into fascinating foreign lands. I love the ideas of science, but like most children, not the hard, slow work of science.
