Fabulous Fridays: Wonder + Wonderful Week

Thought: Hi guys! I hope you all had a good week. Mine was wonderful, with three highlights included :)
1) My friend finally gave me the Canon 30D to take home with me on Monday. I'm looking forward to the hundreds of pictures I will take. 2) Do any of  you remember when I wrote about my favorite Queen songs saying that I had a chance of winning something? Well I did! A CD and a DVD. I was close to winning the vinyl albums and the shirt, but that was the grand prize; I'm still happy I won something :) 3) I opened an Etsy shop where I will be putting many pictures and eventually art. I will improve more and more, it's a promise. 
And now to the main point: this week's Fabulous Friday is special; it's about the word ' wonder.' For some reason I like it a lot; It such a special word that refers to the power of our minds, to astonishing things... it works as an adjective, it sounds good in songs. I also use it as an excuse to put one of my all-time favorite songs: Lemon Tree. The song reminds me of my teen years, but I also think it goes well in situations in which the outcome of something is not as grand as you expected (or if a guy promised you sunshine and he gave you hmmm rain). The other song I included today is just another one of my oldies favorites. I know... I put quite a lot of oldies sometimes :)

{... I wonder how wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree...} 

Runaway by Del Shannon
{...I'm a-walkin' in the rain,
Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain,
Wishin' you were here by me,
To end this misery
And I wonder--
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder, Why,
Why, why, why, why, why she ran away,
Yes, and I wonder,
A-where she will stay-ay,
My little runaway...}

“Wonder rather than doubt is the root of knowledge” - Abraham Joshua Heschel

“Philosophy begins in wonder. And, at the end, when philosophic  thought
 has done its best, the wonder remains.” -  Alfred North Whitehead quotes

“Wonder is music heard in the heart, is voiceless” -Rosemary Dobson quotes

Enjoy your weekend!!
