A Sense of Wonder

For those of you who have yet to see "A Sense of Wonder," the 2010 docudrama based upon Rachel Carson (author of "Silent Spring"), I encourage you to find a way to view this lovely film.

Somehow, I missed its release last year, but was grateful that my husband came across and recorded it for me to watch yesterday. The poignant, one-woman play, written and performed by Kaiulani Lee, was captured beautifully in the simple film; most of the dialogue is from Rachel Carson's writings and the actress delivers each word with heart-felt sincerity.

"Those who dwell, 
as scientists or laymen, 
among the beauties and mysteries of the earth 
are never alone or weary of life."


  1. She was a pioneer, a female hero. I'll look for it but also hope to catch a documentary on her someday, if one has been made.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this, Darla! An inspiring woman!

  3. Indeed! We are all the beneficiaries of her courage and how she inspired us.


Thank you for stopping by. With open heart, I welcome your thoughts however you wish to share them, whether via personal email or as a comment here. ~ Bright Blessings ~
