There’s something in the intricate design in nature that creates a longing in us that never seems to be satisfied. I thought about this as I walked by my favorite flowers at our house. I love the natural order of leaves on these hydrangeas. Each leaf has its own symmetry and as they grow together form a combined symmetry I find beautiful. The different gradients of green down the stalk of the plant pleases the eye. Whenever I look at these plants, or nature in general, it does give me a longing for another place that I haven’t yet found. I’m drawn in but something inside tells me it’s not complete. It reminds me that even though we live now on this blue dot we are merely passing through.
