A wonderful feeling to have about life or any aspect of it.  I often feel it when I wonder if life will give me the time to savour and appreciate all its marvelous details; or those of a culture; or a place.  A good library can also trigger that fox in a hen-house excitement.

What would constitute ‘a prodigality of marvels’ for you?

‘I felt that I had been let loose among a prodigality of marvels.’
