There are so many things that bring me awe. I am in awe of what some people are able to do. I am in awe of how people take life and live it so extraordinarily. I am in awe of people who have challenges that they overcome daily. I am in awe of parents who had to sacrifice much during this time. I am in awe of people who because of the colour of their skin have had to live life differently than those of us who live a privileged life. I am in awe of educators who have had to challenge themselves in ways they did not think possible. I am in awe of all the healthcare workers who are still forging forward to assist others especially during this challenging time. I am in awe of my friends and the people they are.
Each day I am in awe of the magnificent world in which we live even if right now things are not the way I wish they would be. I am grateful for each day that I get to discover or learn something new. I am in awe of you today Paul Signoreli and the way you use words beautifully to express yourself. Thanks for the inspiration for todays post. Awe.

I’m tempted to reply to this post with the single word “shucks,” but feel that may not be inspirational enough. To be slightly more serious: the sense of awe that you’re exploring and promoting is one that feels essential to me in all things involving training, teaching, and learning…and everything else we do. We all too often lose that sense of awe and forget the magic moments when our role in facilitating learning among others and for ourselves produces the look of wonder/awe on the face of the learners. But that, for me, is at the heart of all we do: rekindling an awareness of possibilities and celebrating those possiblities when we encounter and nurture them…as you’re doing through your own writing. Thanks.
Rekindling an awareness of possibilities that could be a post for later.
Looking forward to reading that one.
