In The Presence Of Wonder


“In the presence of wonder, the head has no answers

and the heart has no questions.”

          Richard Wagamese

Photo taken through the window of the steam train travelling down Y Wyddfa [Mount Snowdon], the highest mountain in Wales.

Snowdon Mountain Railway, a journey of a lifetime to the peak of Snowdonia, the rooftop of Wales. 

Richard Wagamese (October 14, 1955 – March 10, 2017),  an Ojibwe from the Wabaseemoong Independent Nations in northwestern Ontario, was a Canadian author and journalist. 

Saw this wonderful quote on “Healing your Grief”.
