Nature Works

Life, from its inception, is a grand mystery. We are only part of it. Nature’s intricate workings and mankind’s attempts to master them – from underground, above ground, outer space, and inner space – intrigue me. Humans originate from nature, yet exploit it; trying to control the uncontrollable with dire consequences. Re-creating parts of nature lets me study their subject, discovering how a beehive functions, which insects feed on milkweed plants, or where our planet is located in the galaxy. Education is both part of the process and part of the goal. If we can learn to treat the planet with reverence and respect, we may – as a species – continue to survive.
