The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Delicate Balance
There is a delicate balance at work. Drops of rain balance upon the leaves and stems of the columbine. Are they single drops of rain--or multiple drops of rain that have accumulated and grown into crowns? As I get close up to observe, I am stilled by the minutia. There is not just one instance of this, look close at the picture, there are several droplets balancing. I marvel at the intelligence of this tiny slice of our natural world. I imagine this is a rain dispersement system. That when the leaves can no longer hold the weight, the rain falls, giving the roots of the plant a hearty drink. The delicate balance of our world is life-affirming.
