Mirabilia

Mirabilia is defined on p. 175 of Pronoia as a noun that refers to “modest astonishments, friendly shocks, sweet anomalies” and elaborated here as ” events that inspire wonder, marvelous phenomena, small miracles, beguiling ephemera, inexplicable joys, changes that inspire quiet awe, eccentric enchantments, unplanned jubilation, sudden deliverance from boring evils; from the Latin mirabilia, “marvels.”)

For me this includes:

  • spotting the first blossom of spring
  • the first fireflies of summer
  • the sound of a toddler’s laughter
  • the taste of the summer’s first ripe and home grown tomato
