Awe and Wonder
Snow Storm (1842) by J M W Turner
Turner's picture of the steamship Ariel in a storm off Harwich is likely to fill us with awe and wonder. These emotions can make us aware of the powerful forces that lie outside ourselves.
Feelings of awe and wonder may also be feelings of fear and of reverence. They are fundamental to our sense of the divine.
These pages are about the significance of our feelings of awe or wonder and the things that may inspire such feelings.
