Ottmar Liebert posted this picture of a Flamenco Iris on his blog today. Amazing, isn't it? Looking at and appreciating nature can be a powerful catalyst. What thoughts does looking at this flower provoke?

The design is perfect - nothing in nature is superfluous, everything has a reason and a function. If one accumlated all the human brainpower that looked at any individual flower like the one in the picture, we could still not understand the intricacies and complexity of the design.
While that in itself is very humbling, it inspires me to learn more about myself - and others. Satchmo paid tribute to this flower (and everything else) when he sang about this in 1970. "And all I'm saying is, see what a wonderful world it would be if only we would give it a chance. Love, baby, love. That's the secret. Yeah." It's A Wonderful World. Louis Armstrong

Dave: Nice thoughts. And in nature, beauty and show have a purpose, it is not superfluous. Often, we have the opposite response, that beauty is an extra. The recent focus on the importance of design in everything is perhaps a nod to nature.
