fractured facts

For those of us who spend a lot of time on our feet and walking all over the place, any sort of foot injury can be a major inconvenience.

When one foot is fractured and then the other follows four years later both on different parts of the fifth metatarsal bone, it is time to learn more about this.

Here at wonder | wander | world we are educating ourselves in the hope of progressive and proactive healing as well as preventing any further injuries to ourselves.

Time to devote to research and recreation, to relax, and rejuvenate in stillness and quiet surrender.

American Epic

An extraordinary story of the trailblazing era when country-wide, the music of ordinary Americans was first recorded.

American Epic documents when America heard itself for the very first time. The three-part historical documentary and feature-length film showcases contemporary artists in rural recording sessions.

hand sewn fashion

Last week on the change warrior blog, Issa posted the matching outfits she had hand stitched for herself and Mahala.

Reviving the lost art of hand sewn fashion can be both treasured and therapeutic.

May our project inspire you to get into hand stitching your own outfits, simple or complex.

May it bring you as much joy and fulfillment as it brings us.

featured animation

This week's pick is the Oscar nominated film, Song of the Sea - a spellbinding ale bursting with magic, humor, and heart.

This animated feature film follows the story of a 10-year-old Irish boy named Ben (David Rawle) who discovers that his mute sister Saoirse, whom he blames for the apparent death of his mother, is a selkie who has to free faerie creatures from the Celtic goddess Macha.

Directed and co-produced by Tomm Moore.

The original music for the film was composed by Bruno Coulais, in collaboration with the Irish group, Kíla. The film also features songs by Nolwenn Leroy. A soundtrack album, consisting of 25 songs from the film, was released digitally on 9 December 2014, by Decca Records.

May this inspire and ignite more magic in us all!

charting hell

This post is not about the road to hell, paved with good intentions or otherwise.

Neither is it a commentary on our current state of affairs worldwide, hellacious as many of our world leaders have turned into. 

No. No No. No. 

Here we pay homage to all the charts created throughout the ages to map Dante's individual circles of Hell. 

Presented via Atlas Obscura - a tortured topography of torment by some of our world renowned artists .

summer in NYC

For those stuck in this city's summer heat, there's still a lot going on to entice us. 

A regular favorite of ours here at wonder | wander | world is a visit to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
