Strangeness is the indispensible
condiment of all beauty.
Many people don’t realize that the banana tree flowers. That’s because we’re seldom around to watch its fireworks before the bananas appear.
Looking at this beautiful flower, you can’t help but wonder how much other beauty we fail to see in the world around us. It’s easy to become so focused on the daily stresses of life that we end up effectively blind to the art inherent in nature.
So wherever you are right now, pause and look around. It may not be as big as a banana bud – it may be as small as a mote of dust dancing in the sunshine – but take a moment to see what you might be overlooking.
I promise there’s a surprise waiting to delight youOwn this beautiful artwork…
