What are your most potent memories of wonder?
Maybe it was the first time you saw the night sky blanketed in stars, or that time there were hundreds of tiny sand dollars strewn across the wet sand. Maybe it was hearing a gospel choir for the first time or the mind-boggling deliciousness of tiramisu.
Wonder taps us into the joy of being alive, opening our eyes to how much beauty there is in the world and how life can surprise us in the most delightful of ways.
The Library of Wonder is an audio project – a simple voicemail box designed to capture a whole range of wonder moments – that will be collaged together into an hour-long audio program.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
- Think of a potent memory of wonder. It could be one of your first memories of wonder from childhood or something more recent. Where were you? How did you feel? What did you see or hear or smell? Tell us that story.
- When you’ve thought of the story you’d like to share, call this number: 510-982-1226
- You will hear an outgoing voicemail from me (getting permission to use your voice note) and then beep! You simply leave a voicemail. (Any length up to 3 minutes)
- Don’t try to make this perfect! Just you sharing in the natural way you share is just right.
My plan is to stitch many of these moments together into an hour-long radio show about wonder. I will use the actual audio recorded in the voice notes – your voices! Which makes me incredibly happy.
