*the fortuity of vague connections

“There is no logical way to the discovery of elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.”

– Albert Einstein

  1. wonderful flora and fauna photos – and there’s chippy! one of the cutest critters ever! and i must agree, the mushrooms are quite stunning

    i know Einstein was a scientist, theorist, whatever – but then he goes and says something so unscientific…

  2. Among definitions for science:

    “the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.”

    Sounds a bit like Mindfulness to me.

    The photos are lovely! I got a kick out of the headless one.

    1. There is something about nature, isn’t there – capturing that moment, that expression? It was a very “wild and free” vacation…it’s always great to step away for a while, right?

  3. LOVE the mushroom photos and I am sort of partial to “off with her head” photo. I thought it had the perfect caption.
