The first of the Five Vital Graces of Cabal Fang is Wonder.
A powerful sense of wonder inoculates against cynicism, encourages empathy and peace, and generally makes the colors of the world around seem brighter.
On a whim, with a few minutes to spare, I pulled the truck into the park and took a walk. I saw may wondrous things, amazing things really.
Can I prove that, when I’m not around, fairies play in splash in this pool? Of course not. But I can imagine that they do. I can hope that they do. Because a world with fairy pools in it is a much more interesting world than a world without them.
And then I can go get back in the truck, and I run my errands. I go and practice martial arts and think about self defense, and all the dangers and horrors that the world around me threatens.
But through it all I know that for every evil in the world there are a thousand beauties, and miracles, and wonders seen and unseen.
