We’ve lost our sense of wonder. Nothing seems all that surprising anymore. “Meh” is what people say about dazzling achievements. Climbing Mount Everest is now seen as a walk in the park.
So I found it amazing that so many of us tuned into Felix Baumgartner’s world-record setting fall from space. Baumgartner did a free fall at Mach 1.28 from 128,000 feet before slowing down and landing softly on earth. It was really dazzling…and for a couple of hours, lots of us were filled with a sense of wonder.
