Wonders of Life

I have been watching a fascinating series called the “Wonders of Life” presented by Professor Brian Cox, OBE, FRS. He is an English physicist, and Advanced Fellow of particle physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester.

Brian presents clearly that all life on earth is connected through our genetic code, stating, “Our DNA contains the finger print of almost 4 billion years of evolution.” And further sharing that “It tells us we are connected not only to every plant and animal alive today, but to every single thing that has ever lived.”

There is such beauty and insight in this theory/science.

The Easel Within

I have so much respect for those that set up there easels and look out into the world and draw and paint what they see. There is such a richness to be noticed in this world, not matter where one gazes. What of the notion of setting up your easel within yourself? The richness of all that resides in our conscious minds and even more that resides in our unconscious, and perhaps collective, mind. Never ending universes to be discovered.
