MOTHER’S SPEECH

“We started the Wonder Revolution one day while walking in the forest.  While we were walking we heard a tiny voice.  The voice sounded very small and very far away, and we looked and looked but we didn’t see anyone.

It turns out the voice belonged to a tiny man named Fred, who lived in the forest in a little mushroom house.  He was standing on top of his little mushroom house and waving and calling out to us when Francis Moss, finally, just by accident, stepped on Fred’s mushroom house and crushed it.  Fred, fortunately, was just able to dive off of his mushroom house and into the grass.  Anyways, we finally saw Fred and we picked him up in our hands and dusted him off.  He wasn’t hurt, fortunately, and Francis was so sorry and felt so bad about destroying Fred’s mushroom house that, in an effort to make it up to Fred, he’s really made it his mission to just spread awareness of mushrooms by writing songs about them, and not eating too many of them, and wearing these really soft shoes so he doesn’t crush anymore mushrooms while walking.

Anyways, we sat with Fred in our hands and talked with him for hours and hours.  Eventually the conversation shifted to life and the way the humans live versus the way the forest creatures live.  And Fred made us realize that humans, we act so often out of habit, or obligation.  We vary rarely do what really makes us happy.  We are obsessed with things and memories.  We’ve become so wrapped up with our thoughts and personal stories that we rarely realize how amazing the world around us is.  We don’t notice the trees stretching up into the clouds or the colors in the sky changing from red to blue to yellow to green or the light spilling out of everyone’s eyes and mouth and hands and heart.  We’ve lost our sense of wonder.

Occasionally, the sense of wonder can be rediscovered — in nature, or in learning, or in discovery, or in love.  We created these songs and stories and art to try to recapture this feeling.  The revolution is an internal one – it’s meant to be a change in how we think and act – it’s a mindset and a lifestyle.  Our goal is to be in touch with this sense of wonder always, no matter where we are or what we’re doing.

And we want all of you to rediscover your sense of wonder too.  This really is a collective, and we want to include everyone, so if you connect with what you see and hear and feel like you’d like to contribute to the movement in some way, contact us.  Or find or create wonder for yourselves.  Find whatever you love to do, find whoever you love to be with, and do those things, and be with those people, and don’t forget to climb the invisible trees or ride the sky bicycles or pick the spark-flowers, because life is amazing and this world is amazing.” -Mother
